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

6. amistre64

linear modifications that conform to similarity are just scale factors of each other; they maintain the same ratios

7. amistre64

g'a' is to ga as e'm' is to em and this relates also to the perimeter

8. amistre64

perimeter - the other 3 sides - ga

9. amistre64

cant type ....

10. amistre64

P-3sides = ga

11. amistre64

172-(56+56+35) = ga so with this we can find the missing g'a'

12. amistre64

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
