Please look in your text book for this problem Statement

Graph the coordinate plane and locate the points A and B.   lies on vertical gridline.

Since triangle ABD has right angle at B is perpendicular to .

Graph of A(8,0) and B(8,3), location of point D

Find the length of from the graph.

Since is the shorter leg, is the longer leg.

Triangle ABD  is a 30°- 60°- 90° triangle.

The 30°- 60°- 90° triangle has the property that the length of its longer leg is

times to the length of the shorter leg.

                        (Substitute AB = 3)


The x-coordinate of the point D is  or 13.2.

The y-coordinate of the point D is as same as y-coordinate of the point B.

The coordinates of the point D are or about .
