JUST the small flowerbed right?

6. kelsoo521

Yes sir

7. NotTim

what ahve you done so far?

8. NotTim

with my feeble mind, I can only tell yo uthe length ofthe side opposite the small garden.

9. NotTim

which is 80-24-24

10. NotTim

Wait, does this involve TRIG ratios, Cos Law, Sine Law, all that?

11. kelsoo521

i do not know but this one problem is about to make me go insane,i dont get it at all

12. NotTim

do you know about trig ratios, Cos Law, Sine LAw? What grade is this? What unit is this?

13. kelsoo521

no,im guessing i don't know nothing i failed the damn class,&& its geometry..

14. NotTim

wat grade is this?

15. NotTim

is the smaller triangle suppose to be proportional to the larger triangle?

16. kelsoo521

:/

17. NotTim

cause if so, the larger triangle is 4 times the 'size'/perimeter of the smaller triangle.

18. NotTim

do you know about z-law, c-law and u-law? Seriously, what grade is this?

19. kelsoo521

you keep asking me what grade this is,geometry has no grade limit to it.... and i dont know none of this if i did i wouldnt be asking,im just saying not trying to be rude

20. NotTim

Geometry has no grade? There's different levels of understanding...

21. kelsoo521

sorry to bother you,have a nice night.

22. NotTim

Anyways, ahve yo uread any of the stuff I gave you? I think one of them helps a lot.

23. NotTim

Don't be rudely passive-aggressive please.

24. kelsoo521

what ^^ ?

25. NotTim

Seriously though, did yo usolve it?

26. kelsoo521

nope i gave up on it

27. NotTim

oh....I kidna gave yo uthe answer tho...

28. kelsoo521

how,i gave you the answer choices and that was nothing near.

29. NotTim

no..i wanted yo uto figure it out, with the multitudes of hints I gave.

30. kelsoo521

oh

31. NotTim

Well, if you have any more need of help, call out!

32. kelsoo521

i dont even know how this junk work...but ehhh ok

33. NotTim

Here, I'll compile the hints: 80-24-24 (with my feeble mind, I can only tell yo uthe length ofthe side opposite the small garden.) cause if so, the larger triangle is 4 times the 'size'/perimeter of the smaller triangle.

34. NotTim

there you go! Don't give up so easily. Soldier up eh

35. kelsoo521

Okay Thanks But I Failed The Test!
