# In the given figure, AB||CD||EF. given AB = 7.5 cm, DC = ycm, EF = 4.5cm, BC = x cm. Calculate the values of x and y.

Given, Ab = 7.5cm, DC = ycm, EF = 4.5cm and BC = xcm

Need to calculate values of x and y

Let us consider Δ ACB and Δ CEF

Both are similar triangles

x = 5cm

let us consider Δ BCD and Δ BFE

from basic proportionality theorem we have we know that line drawn parallel to one side of the triangle, intersects the other two sides in distinct points, then it divides the other 2 side in same ratio.

y =

Y =

Y =

Hence, the value of X is 5cm and Y is
