In ^DEF, the bisector of <F divides the opposite sides into segments that are 4 and 9in long. The side of the triangle adjacent to the 4 in. segment is 6in long. To the nearest tenth of an inch, how long is the third side of the triangle?

• Geometry -

If the other side is x,

x/6 = 9/4

I guess you can figure x from that ok?

• Geometry -

how do you round 9.84 to the nearest tenth of a unit
