Textbook Problem

Square DEFG is inscribed in right △ A B C , as shown. If A D = 6 and E B = 8 , find the area of square DEFG. To determine

To find:

The area of the square DEFG.

Explanation

Finding the area of the square is followed by the geometric formula,

Area of the square A=s2 unit2,

Where s is the length of the each side.

Calculation:

Given:

Square DEFG is inscribed in right ABC, as shown below.

If AD=6 and EB=8

Let x be the length of each side of the equare.

By the triangle ABC,

Let x be the angle of LB and θ be the angle of LA.

(i.e.) LA=LF and LB=LG

By the figure,

tanθ=8x=x6

(i
