Jose observes the Bermuda Triangle on two maps of different sizes. The triangles are similar and have dimensions, in centimeters, as shown in the figure below. Two similar triangles with vertices labeled Bermuda, Miami, and San Juan Puerto Rico are shown. In the bigger triangle, the distance between Bermuda and Miami is 8 and the distance between Miami and San Juan Puerto Rico is 2x. In the smaller triangle, the distance between Bermuda and Miami is 7 and the distance between Miami and San Juan Puerto Rico is x + 3. What is the value, in centimeters, of x?
can u draw or post the figure?
so it equals..... (x+3)/7
no just solve for x now
