Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is A=1/2h(b1+b2)for b1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A=0.5*h*(b1+b2) 2A/h=b1+b2 b1=2A/hb2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, from your partially written out question, I assumed you want to solve the trapezoid formula for b1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no that is the question that my techer gave me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.014. Solve the area formula for a trapezoid, , for . (2 points) b1 = 2Ah – b2 1.b1= 2Ahb2 2.b1=2A/hb1 3.b1=1/2ahb1 4.b1= 2Ahb2 wech wo is rifgt

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i got it it is b1=AHb2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why? Try going from that back to the area formula for a trapezoid.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Write out your steps? I swear you need a subtraction in there somewhere.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what was given was the first line? b1 = 2Ah – b2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ah ok so this is the formula of the trapazoid? t is A=1/2h(b1+b2)for b1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is what i do not get

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so 1. A=1/2h(b1+b2) 2. A = h/2(b1 + b2) (another way to write 1/2h is h/2)

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we want to multiply both sides by 2

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and we get 3. 2A = h(b1 + b2)

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we want to divide both sides by h, to get rid of the h  the whole point here is trying to get b1 by itself  so we continuously perform the same operation to both sides of the equation until it's alone  since if you do the same thing be it multiple, divide, or add to both sides, you still have a valid equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and since we know h/h = 1, we can get rid of h on the right side

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now, to get b1 by itself, we need to subtract b2 from both sides

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that eliminates the b2 on the right side, and leaves b1 alone

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sp 2A/h  b2 = b1, or b1 = 2A/h  b2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i am starting to get it

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but as far as the options go on your multiple choice  I don't see any that match

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i will contact my techer

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you could try inputting different values for b1 and b2

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and see which answer matches the from the choices and the original equation

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but I would do it with our answer first

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and see if they match up to the original area equation

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if different values of b1,h, and b2 are always equal for our answer, it's almost certianly correct

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and yeah, ask your teacher. worst case we're wrong and you have bonus points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok that would be cool lol
