@Ishaan94 can you help me with this problem please?

3. Ishaan94

@experimentX @dpaInc

6. hang254

I understand. im not sure with this one either.

7. Ishaan94

I would have gone with inverse of PB/PQ i.e PQ/PB. As it is PR/PA not PA/PR

8. hang254

but wouldnt that be the same?

$\frac{whole side}{short segment}=\frac{whole side}{short segment}$

11. hang254

what is the wholeside and the shortsegment?

12. Mertsj

|dw:1340654016634:dw|

13. hang254

so pq and pr are the wholesides?

14. Mertsj

$\frac{PQ}{PA}=\frac{PR}{PB}$

15. Mertsj

yes

16. hang254

oohhhh

17. hang254

so the answer would be PB/PQ

18. Mertsj

yes

19. hang254
