9nABCandCDE,
m<ABC=m<CDE (Given)
andm<ACB=m<DCE
So ABC is similar to CDE.
ABDE=CBCD
575=x3
x=1575=2
x=2

What is the angle of b?

So first off, I know how to find the missing length of the leg of the triangle using the pythagorean theorem. 6 2 + b 2 = c 2 .
36 + b 2 = 100
100 36 = 64
64 = 8
So angle angle A is going to be adjacent hypotenuse .
cos ( angle ) = adjacent hypotenuse
cos ( angle ) = 8 10
cos 1 ( 0.8 ) = 36.86989765
Here is where I run into my problem. So assuming that B is going to be opposite hypotenuse .
sin ( angle ) = 6 10
sin 1 ( 0.6 ) = 36.86989765
However, when I use the law of cosines I get the same answer for angle A, but a different angle for B, which comes out as 53.13. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me figure out where my mistakes are.

Calculate the volume of a regular pyramid of height h
Calculate the volume of a regular pyramid of height h, knowing that this pyramid is based on a convex polygon whose sum of inner angles is nπ and the ratio between the lateral surface and the base area is k.
Idea: Use the formula l w h 3 for finding the volume. But at first you have to Bash the problem to find the width and length and then after getting their values you have to plug it into the formula to find the volume.
