Given that cm, cm, cm, cm, cm, and cm, find the values of and .
Given several coplanar parallel lines and two transversals, the lengths of the corresponding segments on the transversals are proportional. This means that . It also means that and that . First use the fact that to solve for the approximate value of as follows:
Now use the fact that to solve for the approximate value of .
Thus, when rounded to two decimal places, the approximate value of is 2.56, and the approximate value of is 6.06.
