ABCD is a trapezoid with DC parallel to AB, AB=4, AD=4, angle A=60, angle C=45. Find DC and BC

  • geometry -

    Make a sketch, marking all the given data

    join BD
    since AB = AD = 4, the triangle is isosceles, furthermore it is easy to see that it must be equilateral, all angles are 60° and BD = 4

    By alternate angles , angle BDC = 60° leaving angle CBD = 75°
    Using the sine law,
    BC/sin60 = 4/sin45
    BC = 4sin60/sin45 = 4.8989 or appr. 4.9

    find DC in the same way
