# Problem #1887

 1887 Trapezoid $ABCD$ has parallel sides $\overline{AB}$ of length $33$ and $\overline{CD}$ of length $21$. The other two sides are of lengths $10$ and $14$. The angles at $A$ and $B$ are acute. What is the length of the shorter diagonal of $ABCD$? $\textbf{(A) } 10\sqrt{6} \qquad\textbf{(B) } 25 \qquad\textbf{(C) } 8\sqrt{10} \qquad\textbf{(D) } 18\sqrt{2} \qquad\textbf{(E) } 26$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.

• Reduce fractions to lowest terms and enter in the form 7/9.
• Numbers involving pi should be written as 7pi or 7pi/3 as appropriate.
• Square roots should be written as sqrt(3), 5sqrt(5), sqrt(3)/2, or 7sqrt(2)/3 as appropriate.
• Exponents should be entered in the form 10^10.
• If the problem is multiple choice, enter the appropriate (capital) letter.
• Enter points with parentheses, like so: (4,5)
• Complex numbers should be entered in rectangular form unless otherwise specified, like so: 3+4i. If there is no real component, enter only the imaginary component (i.e. 2i, NOT 0+2i).
