PQRS is a square with the diagonals PR and SQ. Points W and X are located respectively on the sides PQ and QR such that Angle XSW = 45o.
V is the midpoint of WX while T and U are respectively the points of intersection of PR with the lines WS and XS.
Determine the length of VU, given that VT = 5.
(In reply to Analytic
The plane geometry solution known to myself is rather cumbersome and messy.
I like your analytic geometry solution which is concise, compact and to the point.
Consequently, I confirm having hyperlinked the foregoing in my solution.
