Are you familiar with the concept that similar figures have a ratio for area?

de javu

Yea

im thinking area of big triangle - area of small triangle = area of trapezoid

Yea I know what you're talking about @Calcmathlete

4:25

how did you get 2:5 again?

Shouldn't it be 4:5?

Why do you say it should be 4 : 5?

Because that's the ratio of the corresponding sides...CB=4 and BE=5 so the ratio would be 4:5 or 0.8

Are we looking at the same picture?

Sorry I was looking at a different question haha

shouldn't it be 4:6 then or 2:3?

Okay got it
x=8

Ok. Now subtract the areas of the two triangles.

I know the area of the first triangle is 50...what's the area of the second?

Area of the second triangle = 8

Ohhh
50-8=42

There you go :)

You are truly awesome

lol Thanks @lgbasallote Clearly you need to brush up on those geometry skills ;)

...clearly...

hmm it always is 42 huh
