Formula used:
Similar triangles have sides in same ratio.
Calculation:
We know that in similar triangles HFE and FGE,
\(\displaystyle\frac{{{H}{F}}}{{{F}{G}}}=\frac{{{F}{E}}}{{{G}{E}}}=\frac{{{H}{E}}}{{{F}{E}}}\)(by law of similarity)
Hence, we substitute the value of EH and HG in the equation above , we get
\(\displaystyle{F}{E}^{{2}}={H}{E}{\left({G}{E}\right)}\)
Thus, we get
\(\displaystyle{F}{E}=\sqrt{{{77}}}\)
