Question

If DE = 5 inches is the midsegment of a triangle ABC, find the length of BC

  1. 5
  2. 2.5
  3. 10
  4. 12.5

Hint:

Since, DE is the midsegment of triangle ABC, DE should be half the length of BC. With the help of this theorem we can find the length of BC.

The correct answer is: 10


    Step by step solution:
    DE = 5 inches
    DE = 1 half BC
    BC = 2 DE = 2 × 5 = 10 inches
    Thus, length of BC is 10 inches.
    Hence, option(d) is the correct option.
