Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well assuming you have a graphing calculator i put down (1/2)(x(x+10))72 find when y=0 and got x=8

Denebel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's nothing, you have to solve for x first. It's just an equation so you find your base and height.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x=18,8 ???? is that right

completeidiot

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the height was 10 more than the base if the base if 8 8+10 =18 case closed
