Homework Help: Geometry

Posted by Nikki on Tuesday, April 1, 2008 at 12:35pm.

A circle is circumscribed by a pentagon. The sides are all tangent to the circle. (It's a bit hard to explain without a picture, so I'll do my best.)

The pentagon is QSUWY. However, there are points in between all five sides. In SQ lies point R, SU point T, UW point V, WY point X, and QY with point Z.

It is given that QZ=9, YX=7, XW=12, UW=15, and SU=16. Find the perimeter of the pentagon. In all, I know the perimeter so far is 59, and the problem is I'm not sure how to solve for SQ and ZY. Help please? It's much appreciated.
