Hello All This is another of my son's math issue, for a test he needs to make tomorrow I am assisting him , but would need some clarification here myself http://s9.postimg.org/sj88a4p67/20_04_2017_22_18_09.png AB = 7 , BC= 3, CG = 2 and AE=3 Q1) Find angle AEG Q2) find the angle that diagnoal CE makes with the side AE Thanks for any clarification here

Why isn't your son doing the posting? Much easier to help that way. Btw, had a look at your first few posts: you were not mentioning your son then... Last edited by Denis; April 20th, 2017 at 01:00 PM.

at the age of 14 , kids are not linguistic capable to vent their issues in English(unless parents are from english descents...but we are not talking exceptions)...or if you understand Dutch . dan is het geen problematiek meer jongen. ....at least my kids are not capable to communicate on a forum level. Are canadian kids @ 14 capable communicating on french forums fluently (not hailing from quebec ofcourse)? If you look at my previous posts, they are all elementary school stuff and nothing to do with 'me '. I am working in the IT sector ( Scrum master & QA ) and these school stuff..I have been there in the 1980s but its all rusted now(I am 48 years). I have twins, both sons, and every now and then they come up asking assistance from me. Most I can solve ,but there are some hard eggs where I too need coaching. & Not that I am posting here every day , but this happens once in maybe 6 months when their exams are approaching( check the frequency of my posts). any more Proof you need.....,my linkedin profile, photograph, passport copy *PS: this is the reason, one of my posts goes over Paid subscriptions, so that people who really need assistance do not get police probes . But I was told, this is a free knowledge spreading level , where all are welcome without having to go in lengthy explanations of reasons to be here. and Oh..btw, I would still need the answer to my initial query, so if anyone is kind enough.

Q1) Angle AEG = angle AEF, this is because BF = CG = 2. Draw a straight line from F to intersect the line EA, you will make a new triangle. This new triangle has height EA  FB = 1, and length AB = 7. Treat AB as the 'opposite' side, and (EAFB) as the 'adjacent' side. Then, $\tan(\theta) = \dfrac{7}{32}$. So, $\theta = \tan^{1}(7) = 81.9^{\circ}$ Q2) For this you need to imagine a triangle that has height AE, and a base of AC. The length AC is the hypotenuse of the triangle ABC. $AC = \sqrt{BC^2 + AB^2} = \sqrt{58}$. So, $\tan(\theta) = \dfrac{\sqrt{58}}{3}$. Where AE = 3.
