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 CE.

  1. 15
  2. 20
  3. 25
  4. 30

Hint:

In a kite, BE = CE always. With the help of this equation, we can find the value of CE.

The correct answer is: 20


    Step by step solution:
    BE = CE
    rightwards double arrow4x = 7x – 15
    rightwards double arrow7x – 4x = 15
    rightwards double arrow3x = 15
    rightwards double arrowx = 5
    CE = 7 x 5 - 15
     = 35 – 15
     = 20 units.
    Hence, option(c) is the correct option.
