An angle bisector of a triangle divides the opposite side of the triangle into segments 6 cm and 5 cm long. A second side of the triangle is 6.9 cm long. Find the longest and shortest possible lengths of the third side of the triangle. Round answers to the nearest tenth of a centimeter.

41.4 cm, 8.3 cm

30 cm, 5.8 cm

41.4 cm, 4.3 cm

8.3 cm, 5.8 cm

call the third side of the triangle x.

The angle bisector theorem states that the angle bisector to a side divides the side into segments whose ratio equals the ratio of the other two sides.

Since we don't know which other side is 6.9, either

x/6.9 = 5/6

or

x/6.9 = 6/5

So, x is 5.8 or 8.3 -- answer D
