Triangle ABC is a right angled triangle with right angle at Vertex B. Triangle DEF is an equilateral triangle with side 10 cm. The lengths of sides (in cm) are marked in the Drawing. What is the area of the polygon ABFEGA? (1) The length of CD (overlap of sides) is 3 cm. (2) The length of altitude (GH) of triangle GDC is 2.598 cm. Attachment:

Hence Triangle, GDC is equilateral Triangle. So, Sufficient. From Stmnt 2: Triangle ABC is Similar to Triangle GHC. Using this you can find the length of GC. So, Sufficient. Hope this Helps.

Hi Very nice work. I have framed this question myself. If you think, this is a good question, please provide Kudos... \(\) rahul16singh28 wrote: Janvisahu wrote: Hi math experts, try this question and provide feedback...

Hi It is easy to prove that angle BCA is 60. triangle ABC is 30:60:90 triangle as we know by the ration of sides. Sides are in ratio1:root 3:2 Janvisahu wrote: Triangle ABC is a right angled triangle with right angle at Vertex B. Triangle DEF is an equilateral triangle with side 10 cm.

A. 12 B. 16 C. 20 D. 24 E. 28
source:self The median of 12 consecutive odd integers is between the 6th and 7th terms, where if \(n > 1\), then \(A_{n} = A_1 + 2(n1)\) \(A_1 = n\) \(A_2 = n + 2\) . . \(A_6 = n + 10\) \(A_7 = n + 12\) . . \(A_{12} = n + 22\) Median = \(n + 11\). If not sure: \(\frac{(n+10+n+12)}{2}=\frac{(2n+22)}{2}=(n + 11)\) Square of median = difference between squares of first and last terms: \((n + 22)^2  (n)^2 = (n + 11)^2\) \(n^2 + 44n + 484  n^2 = n^2 + 22n + 121\) \(n^2  22n  363 = 0\) \((n  33)(n + 11) = 0\) \(n = 33\) (prompt says positive) \(A_1 = 33\) \(A_{12} = n + 22 = 55\) Sum of digits of \(33\) and \(55\): \(3 + 3 + 5 + 5 = 16\) ANSWER B

This question can be done by two methods, first being conventional method, in which we will find conditional probabilities when the cards drawn in earlier draw is spade or not spade and adding all the cases. But this method is tedious and lengthy. My approach: Since the number of cards of spade, heart, club and diamond is same. The probability of each group of cards to appear in required draw will be same by symmetry. Let each probability be p. Now since it is certain that the fifth card will be out of these four groups . TOTAL probability =1 p+p+p+p =1 Hence p =1/4. Answer is 1/4. Please provide Kudos if u like my approach.

Another approach: Let the prime numbers are p1,p2,...p25. To find the product, each of the p1,p2... can be used or not, there is 2choices for each prime number. 2*2*2...2( 25 times) = 2^25 But this includes the cases when no number is selected (1 case) and the case when only one of the prime number is selected (25cases). These are unfavorable cases. Hence answer is 2^25 26. Hence answer is E
