## kamuela710 3 years ago What is the value of x in QRST https://www.connexus.com/content/media/456845-1282011-25831-PM-233384529.png

1. GT

x = 4 (again assuming that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram as it appears to be visually).

2. mth3v4

i do not know what the shape of the quadrilateral is it does seem "to scale" more information is needed

3. GT

How can x be negative????????? It is length for god's sake.

4. GT

Please don't argue this point on this particular problem. This problem is giving x as a variable representing length. It can't be negative.

5. ash2326

if we assume it's a parallelogram then 3x=12 and 8= 2x it has to satisfy the other equation also 3x+12=8+2x can't be satisfied simultaneously

6. GT

Why does 3x+12 = 8 + 2x??? Who said the diagonals of the parallelogram are equal???

7. ash2326

sorry , they aren't equal

8. MrYantho

Whoops. You are right. 8=2x AND 3x=12

9. GT

Thank you! It is not my purpose to prove I am right. But, to not confuse the person asking the question.
