257 Chapter 8 59. Two angles are given, 60° and 90°, so this is a 30°-60°-90° triangle. The shorter leg is half the length of the hypotenuse, and the longer leg is Ï 3 w times the length of the shorter leg. Therefore, x 5 16 Ï 3 w and y 5 16. 60. Determine the slopes of A w B w and B w C w . slope of A w B w 5 ¬ } y x 2 2 2 2 y x 1 1 } 5 ¬ } 3 6 2 2 5 2 } 5 ¬ 2 } 1 2 } slope of B w C w 5 } 7 8 2 2 3 6 } 5 2 The product of the slopes of A w B w and B w C w is 2 1, so A w B w ' B w C w . 61.
