2. MODELS Jim has a scale model of his sailboat. The figure shows drawings of the original sailboat and the model. Find x.

3. GEOMETRY Georgia draws a regular pentagon and starts connecting its vertices to make a 5-pointed star. After drawing three of the lines in the star, she becomes curious about two triangles that appear in the figure, !ABC and !BCE. They look similar to her. Prove that this is the case. Sample answer: m!ADB ! 108, so m!DBA ! 36 (base of iso- sceles "ABD). Thus, m!ABC ! 72°. Similarly, m!DCB ! 36° and m!ACB ! 72°. So, m!BEC ! 72° and m!BAC ! 36°. Therefore, "ABC and "BCE are similar.

4. SHADOWS A radio tower casts a shadow 8 feet long at the same time that a vertical yardstick casts a shadow half an inch long. How tall is the radio tower? 576 ft

MOUNTAIN PEAKS For Exercises 5 and 6, use the following information. Gavin and Brianna want to know how far a mountain peak is from their houses. They measure the angles between the line of site to the peak and to each other’s houses and carefully make the drawing shown.
