    Do you know how to solve it now and get that answer?

    I would like to know how it was solved, what relationship of a rhombic did MertsJ utilize to obtain that solution??

    Maybe I am interested in\[\sqrt{275}=5\sqrt{11}\]

    That would be the value of x hmmmmm but how is that set up?

    Would it be the \[x=\sqrt{25}\times \sqrt{11}\] But what relationship would result in that???

    x appears to be a geometric mean between 11 and 25 but what is the relationship that says this is so?

    what determines kite width? is it just the way it is orientated?

    say its got segments of ab and cd a*b = c*d is one of those geomteric things

    soo, 11*25 = x*x 275 = x^2 x = sqrt(275)

    width is then: 2sqrt(275)

    the wolf says thats 10sqrt(11) so you can dbl check it if need be

    lol .... a smarter person than me would have noticed: 2 sqrt(25 * 11) = 2*5*sqrt(11) i spose :)

    The answer depends on whether x is half the bisected diagonal or the entire diagonal. The way it is drawn seems to suggest x is half that diagonal, as x is placed in the right half of that diagonal and not towards the center. Also one needs to take into account that the teacher does not wish to trip the student. So the answer should be 5√11
