Homework Help: Math

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 at 7:02pm.

A wire that weighs 9 ounces per meter is stretched from point D to point B. Another wire is stretched from point B to point A that weighs 8 ounces per meter. If you know the total weight of the two wires is 197 ounces, how far is it from point B to C?

*On my homework, there is a drawing of the wires... It makes sort of like a triangle flag shape.. It is a right triangle. We don't know the BASE of that triangle, which is the distance from point B to C, B being the bottom point and C being the top. So the triangle is a right triangle with the base on the left.. From Point B, there is a wire going down to point A.. The distance from Point C to Point A is 15 meters. The top of the triangle is point D. The leg of the triangle, which is the distance from Point D to C is 12 meters... If you need more information just ask..
