1. If bh=42 what is de
2.If ab=36 what is jf
3.If ab=36 what is ke

I think it was my fault so dont worry hahah

- anonymous

looks like you've got 6 congruent segments across the bottom with a total length of 42, so what do you think DE equals?

- anonymous

I believe de = 7 but Its important that I get it right so thats why I posted this

- anonymous

yep

- anonymous

Now for the others. You have a triangle with one side of 36 (that's AB) and another side of 42 (BH). All the other triangles as you move across from left to right are similar to the biggest triangle (ABH.) Are you with me?

- anonymous

Yea

- anonymous

Since all the triangles are similar, the proportions of their sides are the same. So 36/42, which reduces to 6/7, is a common proportion in all of the triangles. For example, triangle JFH

- anonymous

has a base of 14 (7*2) so to find jf, set up a proportion of 6/7=x/14 to get JF.

- anonymous

so JF would be?

- anonymous

12

- anonymous

good! Now do the same thing for KE. Figure the length of the base of triangle KEH and solve the proportion

- anonymous

you doing OK?

- anonymous

Yea I got 18 but im not really sure if its right

- anonymous

that's what I got as well: x/21=6/7. x=18 I think you've got it!

- anonymous

Alright well thank you so much!

- anonymous

my pleasure!
