# Finding All the Unknown Values in Triangles

##### Problem 1

1) In the right triangles shown, the measure of angle $ABC$ is the same as the measure of angle $EBD$. What is the length of side $BE$?

##### Problem 2

2) In right triangle $ABC$, angle $C$ is a right angle, $AB = 13$, and $BC = 5$. What is the length of $AC$?

##### Problem 3

3) In this diagram, lines $AC$ and $DE$ are parallel, and line $DC$ is perpendicular to each of them. What is a reasonable estimate for the length of side $BE$?

Given: $AC \parallel DE$, $DC \perp DE$, $DC \perp AC$

##### Problem 4

4) Select **all** of the right triangles. Write each corresponding letter in the answer box and separate letters with commas.

a) Triangle $ABC$ with $AB = 30$, $BC = 40$, and $AC = 50$ b) Triangle $XYZ$ with $XY = 1$, $YZ = 1$, and $XZ = 2$

c) Triangle $EFG$ with $EF = 8$, $FG = 15$, and $EG = 17$ d) Triangle $LMN$ with $LM = 7$, $MN = 24$, and $LN = 25$

e) Triangle $QRS$ with $QR = 4$, $RS = 5$, and $QS = 6$

##### Problem 5

Andre says he can find the length of the third side of triangle and it is 13 units. Mai disagrees and thinks that the side length is unknown.

5) Who do you agree with?

6) Show or explain your reasoning.

##### Problem 6

7) In right triangle $ABC$, altitude $CD$ with length $h$ is drawn to its hypotenuse. We also know $AD = 8$ and $DB = 2$. What is the value of $h$?

##### Problem 7

8) Select the sequence of transformations that would show that triangles $ABC$ and $AED$ are similar. The length of $AC$ is 6.
