h = 7a + 4
a = (h-4)/7

- anonymous

whats the seven?

- Diyadiya

height is four more than 7 times its base
so h= 7b+4
where b is base
so 7b=h-4
b=(h-4)/7

/7 is what i meant :) but thank you for that information

- Diyadiya

7 is given in the question :) "seven times its base " :)

- anonymous

How do i get the answers, do i solve both?

- Diyadiya

i hope this is the final answer

- anonymous

which one is the final answer :) is the answer just how its set up?

- Diyadiya

\[h= 7b+4 \]\[b= \frac{(h-4)}{7}\]

- anonymous

Thank you :) Can you help me with two more? Then I'll be done for now. I'm just on a less time because I got up late and I have to work on another project soon. But first I have to get this math out of the way, my teacher makes us have perfectly correct answers

- Diyadiya

I'll try

- Diyadiya

wait 5min

ok :D thanks so much, ill be right back...

one leg of a right triangle is 6 millimeters shorter than longer leg, and hypotenuse is 6 millimeters longer than longer leg. Find lengths of sides of triangle.

- anonymous

so i need longer, shorter, and hypo :)

- Diyadiya

Longleg=x
shorter leg= x-6
Hypo=x+6
(x+6)^2=(x-6)^2+x^2
x^2+12x+36=x^2-12x+36+x^2
x^2-24x=0
x(x-24)=0
x=0 or x=24

- anonymous

Yay thanks so much! One more question and I'm done...be right back :D

- Diyadiya

ok :)

- anonymous

oh which is longer etc?

- anonymous

It wants three answers

- Diyadiya

i've , mentioned everything
can you tell me which is longer , shorter & hypotenuse?

- anonymous

hypo: 30
longer:24
short:19?

- Diyadiya

is short one 19?

- Diyadiya

24-6=18 :)

- anonymous

18? ok thanks :D Ill be back in a sec

- anonymous

Ok same problem but 1 mill instead of six :( My computer kicked me off and made me a new problem, I'm sorry

- Diyadiya

i didnt get you,what happend?

- anonymous

The problem reset

- anonymous

can you solve it with 1 instead of six used? mill wise :)

- Diyadiya

can you try out i'll help you

- anonymous

ok just a sec :)

- anonymous

I tried :( I just messed the whole thing up, the dumb x^2 confuses me

- Diyadiya

(x+1)^2=(x-1)^2+x^2
x^2+2x+1=x^2-2x+1+x^2
x^2-4x=0
x(x-4)=0
x=0 or x=4
longest=4
shortest =4-1=3
hypo=4+1=5

- anonymous

oh Diya thanks so much :)

- Diyadiya

Welcome =)

- anonymous

I have one more now ^_^ <3
