Both ABC and ADE are right triangle .. so HYP AD of triangle ADE = $$\sqrt{12^2+9^2} = 15$$.. and BC is $$\sqrt{3^2+4^2} = 5$$.. hence AB + CD = 15-5=10 E _________________ Math Revolution GMAT Instructor Joined: 16 Aug 2015 Posts: 8987 GMAT 1: 760 Q51 V42 GPA: 3.82 Re: If 2 line segments AB and CD is collinear, what is the sum of AB and C [#permalink] Show Tags 10 May 2016, 17:54 According to the Pythagoras theorem, we get sides of a triangle as 9:12:15. Then this can be reduced to 3:4:5. Hence, 15-5=10, making E as the correct answer. _________________ MathRevolution: Finish GMAT Quant Section with 10 minutes to spare The one-and-only World’s First Variable Approach for DS and IVY Approach for PS with ease, speed and accuracy.
