Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0AB corresponds to FG

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So FG/AB = 6/8 = 0.75 is the number you multiply each side length in the larger pentagon to get the corresponding side length in the smaller pentagon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08 times 0.75 = 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh for some reason, it still works out...lucky coincidence but yes, you multiply by 0.75

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to go backwards, you divide by 0.75

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0notice how FJ corresponds to AE

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and FJ = 6 So AE = FJ/0.75 = 6/0.75 = 8 which means AE = 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the second pentagon should be rotated slightly clockwise so that FG matches up with AB

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now tell me what ij corresponds to

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0did you do the rotation? this will make F the bottom most point

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so ij corresponds to ???

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which side from ABCDE

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now multiply that length by 0.75 to find ij

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0try it again 5 times 0.75 = ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The two triangles are similar So AD/ED = BD/CD 35/16 = 25/x Now solve for x

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.035/16 = 25/x 35x = 16*25
