are we to assume right angles and a rectangle?

- amistre64

if so, then tr = sw
5x-4 = 2x+3
3x = 7
x = 7/3 ??

the wt=rs = 3x-1 = 6

- amistre64

but other than that, you cant do much else....can you?

- anonymous

I don't think your assumption is valid, since SW is different than TR.

- amistre64

sw is different; its equation is different; but x = x....right?

- amistre64

i think i see what your saying :)

- amistre64

well, i made them equal to find x so they should be good with that assumption

- anonymous

You do? that's good :)

- anonymous

I see what you did.

- anonymous

If it's right triangle and the shape is of a rectangle, then the two angles should be exactly the same. Right?

- amistre64

yes the 2 tris should be the same; the angles of a tri can be different tho; but the same in each tri....congruent/similar?

- amistre64

the tris are equal so the sides are equal regardless right :)

- amistre64

my stupidity played in my favor lol i dint see the congruent triangle part lol

- anonymous

Haha.

- anonymous

I didn't actually get what you're saying :)

- amistre64

since the triangles are similiar, and they have one side that is the same; the other sides are equal..... so its as if its a rectangle :)

- anonymous

Oh yeah, almost.

- amistre64

i equate two same sides and find x then find the length of th emissing by equating it to the known side

- anonymous

Exactly.
