2. mathslover

i suppose the given info may be : AF : AC :: AD : AB ?

3. Ganpat

are you aware of similarity of triangles ??

4. mathslover

@Ganpat dude not a case of similarity or congruency but instead a ratio problem.. i do tink

5. katiebugg

lol its double 5 it has to be so x is 10

6. Nimwhitted

But thats not a answer?

7. mathslover

@Nimwhitted ... so can you tell me : $\large\frac{AF}{AC}=\frac{AD}{AB}$

8. katiebugg

wait lol x is 15 lol sorry

9. Nimwhitted

I was thinking it was 15

10. mathslover

First of all AF = 5 , AC = 9 AD = x - 5 BD = 8

11. Ganpat

@mathslover : for taking ratios we do consider similarity na ??

12. mathslover

yes u r thinking right :

13. mathslover

yes right @Ganpat but mentioning that r u aware of ratios would have been more nice : just kidding ...
