Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is there a relation between the two lower triangle? in particular, is there a relation between 2x+3.5 and 3x+1.5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It doesn't look like AC depends at all on the bottom half of the triangle...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Prove PAC and BAP are congruent triangles. Then you can figure out what AC is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they have 2 sides that are congruent right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, BP is congruent to CP, and the vertical side AP is congruent with itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ah okay. So side BP and PC are congruent because it is given by the marks. and angle BPA and CPA are right angles therefore they are also congruent . AP is congruent to AP because of the reflexsive property. Therefore triangle APB is congruent to triangle APC. Therefore AB is congruent to AC. AC= 15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, @Chocolatechocolatechip is correct. You don't actually have to prove it for this triangle, but that reasoning is correct. AC corresponds to AB, and since the 2 triangles are congruent, AC must be congruent to AB, so AC = 15.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Chocolatechocolatechip what do I do to find DB? do i put the 2 equations equal to each other?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do the same thing, prove the two smaller triangles are congruent. They are congruent by Sideangleside. Therefore the sides BD and CD are equal. Therefore 2x + 3.5 = 3x + 1.5. find x and then input x back into the equation to find BD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x= 2. Then put 2 into the equation. so it would be 2(2) + 3.5
