Find the values of the variables and the lengths of the sides of this kite. http://tinypic.com/r/mr4rih/6
From the image you can get two equations, namely: y-4 = x+5 3x+5 = x+12 I suggest solving for x in the bottom one and subbing it into eqn 1
i only got x=7 , if that parts right . im confused on the subbing part
okay, now that we know x = 7 y-4 = x+5 y - 4 = 7 + 5 y-4 = 12
but why does answer c have multiple y='s ?
The question states to find the values of the variable as well as the side lengths, these extra values are the side lengths that need to be found.
