    Geometry skills

    In the figure below, AC is parallel to DE. AE, FG and CD intersect at the point B. FG is perpendicular to AC and DE. The length of DE is 5 inches, the length of BG is 8 inches and the length of AC is 6 inches. What is the area, in square inches, of triangle ABC?

    Good luck!

    Nice puzzle!

    Without too much confidence, I make it
    square inches.

    Primary school is much better than the adult world - you get to do a lot more colouring in.
