atleast help me out? *sigh* i give up....
now that I got some time, i will see what I can do .... but one way to advertise your question would be to supply a link to it in the chatbox
linear modifications that conform to similarity are just scale factors of each other; they maintain the same ratios
g'a' is to ga as e'm' is to em and this relates also to the perimeter
perimeter - the other 3 sides - ga
172-(56+56+35) = ga so with this we can find the missing g'a'
g'a' is to ga as e'm' is to em g'a' 172-(56+56+35) ---- = -------------- 14 35 g'a' = 14(172-(56+56+35))/35
with any luck, thats 10
Then what is it? @AlexPR787
i know is not 10 because i got it wrong directioned23
