in triangle ABD:<A=45,<B=105,<D=30

ReplyDeletewith the sine law

BDsin30=ABsin45;BD=ABsqr(2)

in triangle BDC

with the cosine law

CD²=BC²+BD²-2BC.BD.cos45=AB²

CD=AC

triangle ACD is isoscele

x=15

.-.

let t=AB, it is known that BD=t\sqrt{2} (because tr ABD is 45-30-105).

ReplyDeleteConsecuently CD=t (by tracing CX, altitude of tr BCD and using Pithagorean Theorem).

So tr ACD is isosceles and finally <CDA= < CAD=15.

draw DG perpendicular to AD, G on extensin of AC

ReplyDeleteABDG cyclic AC = CB = R => C midpoint => AC = CD

arc BG = 2∙A = 120° => arc AB = 60° => C midpoint

ReplyDeleteC origin, A,B and D circular

ReplyDeleteIBCI=ICDI=r

so trianle BCD isosceles and x=15

Draw perpendiculars BP,CQ to AD,BD respectively. Then Tr ABP congruent to Tr BQC SAA. So BP =QC=BQ=QD since < BDP=30. So Tr BQC= Tr DQC. Hence <QDC=45. x=15

Draw perpendiculars BP and CQ to AD and BD respectively. Then these 2 peroenduculars are easily seen to be equal from congruent Tr.s. Also BP=CQ=BQ=1/2 BD (90 60 30 Tr) = QD, so Tr BQC =Tr BQD. Hence<CDQ = 45,'X=15

ReplyDeleteProblem 504

ReplyDeleteIs <ABD=60+45=105 ,so <BDA=30=60/2=(<BCA)/2. Then the point C is the circumcenter of triangle ABD.So AC=CD.Therefore <ADC=<DAC=60-45=15.

Solution2

ReplyDeleteLet the bisector of < ACB meet AD at E.

Then <BDE <BCE = 30, hence BECD is concyclic.

So x = <CBE = < CAE =15

Solution 3

ReplyDeleteLet X be the foot of the perpendicular from B to AD

If BD = 2p then since <BDX = 30, BX = AX = p and so AB =BC = sqrt2.a

So in Triangle BCD, <B = 45, BC = sqrt2.p and BD = 2p, hence the same is easily seen to be right angled at C.

Hence BDCX is concyclic and x = <XBC = 15
