ReplyDeleteLet u= EA=GK

And v= GE=CJ

Draw JM //BC ( M on AB ,see sketch)

Observe that triangles GKE, JKF, JHC and HGB are similar

And triangle JGK congruent to GJH ( per hypotenuses- legs congruence)

So MG=HJ=GK= u and BM=CJ= v

And GA=u+v=GB => G is the midpoint of AB => GHB is 30-60-90 triangle

So BH= 5.sqrt(3) and CH= 10- 5.sqrt(3) and u= JH=2.CH= 20-10.sqrt(3)

X= DJ=AG+ GM= 5+ u= 25-10.sqrt(3)
