the formula to find it is 1st piece/alt = alt/2nd piece

im posting the picture of it now, the 1st piece would be 5/2 the alt is x and the 2nd piece is 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
(5/2) / x = x /10 25 = x^2 x = 5
anonymous
  • anonymous
but 5/2 is a fraction, how would it = 25?
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{\frac{5}{2}}{x} = \frac{x}{10} \implies 10x *\frac{\frac{5}{2}}{x} = 10x * \frac{x}{10} \]

Ok, so the first thing to figure out is what is the length of the left and right slopes in terms of x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya it would end up as x^2 = ( 5/2 times 10)
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{5}{2} \times 10 = \frac{5*10}{2} = \frac{50}{2} = 25\]
