Side of Square

Given that Square $ABCD$ has side length $10$ and area of $\triangle ABE$ is $40$.we have to find out length of \(BE\) where \(E\) is the point on \(BC\). we know area of the \(\triangle ABE=\frac{1}{2} AB.BE=40\)

Can you find out the side length of \(BE\)?

Can you now finish the problem ..........

Side of Square

\(\triangle ABE=\frac{1}{2} AB.BE=40\)

\(\Rightarrow \triangle ABE=\frac{1}{2} 10.BE=40\)

\(\Rightarrow \triangle ABE=\frac{1}{2} 10.BE=40\)

\(\Rightarrow BE=8\)
