Take Perpendicular Distances, Get One Side (Posted on 2007-07-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
(A) In a right angled triangle PQR, an altitude RS is drawn from the vertex R of the right angle. The respective perpendicular distances of the point S from the sides PR and QR are 6 and 3.

Determine the length of PR.

(B) What would have been the length of PR if the respective perpendicular distances of the point S from the sides PR and QR were 8 and 4?
