Textbook Problem

For Review Exercises 29 and 30, use the drawing below. Find each indicated length.

a) E F b) G H

To determine

a)

To find:

The length of segment EF.

Explanation

Approach:

Measuring line segments:

The instrument used to measure a line segment is a scaled straightedge such as a ruler, a yardstick, or a meter stick.

When we express the length of a line segment, we do not write the bar on top of the name of line segment. Suppose the length of line segment AB- is 10 cm, then we write it as AB=10 cm.

To find the length of line segment using a ruler:

1. Place the ruler so that “0” corresponds to one endpoint of the line segment.

2. Read the length of line segment by reading the number at the remaining endpoint of the line segment.

When “0” is not placed at the endpoint of line segment, the length of line segment is the positive difference between the numbers found at its endpoints

To determine

c)

To find:

The length of segment GH.
