The area of ∠ JKL is 65 sq.units
Quantity A |
Quantity B |
\(KL\) |
\(LM\) |
Quantity A is greater.
Quantity B is greater.
The two quantities are equal.
The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
tHE ANSWER GIVEN IS D.
Here is my reasoning let me know if it is correct -
We know area of triangle = 1/2 base X altitude ie for triangle JKL; KL * 10/2 = 65
or KL = 13
Now consider triangle JKM
By Pythagoras theorem -
KM = √ (26 ^ 2-10 ^ 2) = 24
or LM = 24-13 = 11 (since LM = KM-KL ) so Quantity A> Quantity B.
