Question

Direction : In a triangular box, shelves are divided as shown in the image; EF = 5 cm is just below the midsegment, CD = 3 cm is just above the midsegment.


What is the length of base of the box?

  1. 8
  2. 10
  3. 6
  4. 4

Hint:

In the question, we are required to find the base length of the triangle.

The correct answer is: 8


    Step by step solution:
    It is given that EF = 5 cm is just below the midsegment and CD = 3 cm is just above the midsegment.
    Therefore, the midsegment length can be 4 cm, so the base length will be twice of the midsegment length [according to the midsegment rule]
    Thus, length of the base of the triangle = 2 x 4cm = 8 cm
    Hence, option(a) is the correct option.
