 Triangle A has sides of lengths #15 #, #12 #, and #12 #. Triangle B is similar to triangle A and has a side of length #24 #. What are the possible lengths of the other two sides of triangle B?
 A triangle has corners at points A, B, and C. Side AB has a length of #21 #. The distance between the intersection of point A's angle bisector with side BC and point B is #7 #. If side AC has a length of #24 #, what is the length of side BC?
 A triangle has corners at points A, B, and C. Side AB has a length of #44 #. The distance between the intersection of point A's angle bisector with side BC and point B is #24 #. If side AC has a length of #32 #, what is the length of side BC?
 Yosief is 4 feet 9 inch boy. He stands in front of a tree and sees that it's shadow coincide with his. Yosief shadow measures 9 feet 6 inches. Yosief measures the distance between him and the tree to calculate its height, how does he do it?
