USE THE INCENTER THEOREM
A. Find ST if S is the
incenter of ΔMNP.
By the Incenter Theorem, since S is
equidistant from the sides of ΔMNP,
ST = SU.
Find ST by using the
Pythagorean Theorem.
a2 + b2 = c2
Pythagorean Theorem
82 + SU2 = 102
Substitution
64 + SU2 = 100
82 = 64, 102 = 100
SU2 = 36
Subtract 64 from each side.
SU = ±6
Take the square root
of each side.
Since length cannot be negative, use only the positive square root, 6. Since
ST = SU, ST = 6.
Answer: ST = 6
