Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was told that such answer is wrong. I can't figure out why and what the right answer is!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am staring at it and can't figure out why that would be the wrong answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I see what you're saying because the two sides are of unequal length

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They are unequal. But, it is an isosceles trepezoid. So, your calculation (same one I am getting) should be right. But, a similar problem I provided an answer to was ruled "wrong". I am torn.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I would assume the answer would be right as well. let me try to use some trig to see if i can get a different answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2just take cos47 = 16/h solve for h; h= ~21.88 then inv sin( 13/h) = 36.48 degrees. So set 3x  4 = 36.48 and x ~ 13.49
