Question


ABCED is a kite, AB = 5x – 12, AC = 3x – 2 , BE = 4x , CE = 7x -15 , DC = 10 units,
AB, AC, BE, CE, DC are line segment
Find BD.

  1. 10
  2. 15
  3. 20
  4. Cannot be determined.

Hint:

In a kite, BD = DC [ from the proof of perpendicular bisector theorem].

The correct answer is: 10


    Step by step solution:
    DC = 10 units,
    From the proof of perpendicular bisector theorem,
    BD = DC
    BD = 10 units.
    Hence, option(a) is the correct option.
