since b=a+x, x=b-a
anonymous
  • anonymous
so we dont use the pyth thereom here
anonymous
  • anonymous
if you were given the lengths a and b , you would
anonymous
  • anonymous
nvm, you don't
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the length of b is equal to x+a
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
how did you know the other side was equal to a . you drew it in

|dw:1328026577029:dw| since its a square, I assumed all the lines were proportional
anonymous
  • anonymous
it was given all the angles are 90 degrees
anonymous
  • anonymous
so, yeah, the lines are proportional then
anonymous
  • anonymous
eventhough there are triangles inside a square we assume the lines are still proportional
anonymous
  • anonymous
the triangles are congruent, so they are proportional, and thus the lines are proportional as well
