I guess assume nothing. Unless there is a rightangle shown although the 2 lines appear to interset at 90, we don't assume they do...

yea that's what i thought so question is if i don't know how to do a certain problem but i do know that the figure is drawn to scale is it safe to eliminate answer choices based on the visual of the figure alone?
