Problem
In the figure shown below, is a regular pentagon and . What is ?
Solution 1
Triangle is isosceles, so . since is also isosceles. Using the symmetry of pentagon , notice that . Therefore, .
Since ,
So, since must be greater than 0.
Notice that .
Therefore,
Solution 2
Notice that . Since a triangle has the congruent sides equal to times the short base side, we have . Now notice that , and that is . So, and adding gives , or .
Solution 3
When you first see this problem you can't help but see similar triangles. But this shape is filled with triangles throwing us off. First, let us write our answer in terms of one side length. I chose to write it in terms of so we can apply similar triangles easily. To simplify the process lets write as .
First what is in terms of , also remember :
Next, find in terms of , also remember :
So adding all the we get . Now we have to find out what x is. For this, we break out a bit of trig. Let's look at . By the law of sines:
Now by the double angle identities in trig. substituting in
A good thing to memorize for AMC and AIME is the exact values for all the nice sines and cosines. You would then know that:
so now we know:
Substituting back into we get
Solution 4
Notice that and , so we have . Thus Solving the equation gets .
Since Solving the equation gets .
Since Solving the equation gets
Finally adding them up gets
Note: this solution might be a bit complicated but it definitely works when none of the cleverer symmetries in Solution 1 is noticed.
