**drwls**, Sunday, June 27, 2010 at 8:16amI do not understand the meaning of the ƒ´ symbol that appears in front of ABD. Is ABD a triangle?

If BC is an altitude of the triangle ABD, then the Pythagorean theorem tells you that AC = sqrt[(16)^2 +(30(^2] = 34. The angle at A is therefore

arctan (15/8) = 61.93 degrees

You don't have enough information to say what BD, AD and CD are unless ABD is also a RIGHT triangle. If it is, BD = 34*tan61.93 = 63.75;

AD = 34/cos61.9 = 72.26

CD = AD - AC = 38.26
