 ```A quadrilateral has sides A, B, C, and D with the following measurements: A=4?, B=8?, C=15? and D=15.75?, with sides A and B being parallel. A line segment X is drawn from side D to side C which is perpendicular to side D and divides side D into 2 segments measuring 10.375? and 5.375?. What is the length of segment X?``` Request for Question Clarification by redhoss-ga on 28 May 2005 20:09 PDT ```I have drawn your problem in a CAD program. There are two answers to your problem depending on which end of "D" you work from. I have both answers from the layout, but am not going to work the problem out in trig/geom because I am too lazy. Do you want just the two answers.``` Clarification of Question by emcheck5-ga on 29 May 2005 06:18 PDT `Yeah the two answers will be fine. The line is drawn closest to the side A.`
 ```Hello emcheck5, the length you are looking for is 5.54 inches. Too bad I can't show you the layout. CAD made a fairly nasty problem very easy. Redhoss```
