## AnaheimNena714 Given QRS TUV, QS = 3v+2 and TV = 7v – 6, find the length of QS and TV one year ago one year ago

1. Dido525

I don't understand the question...

2. AnaheimNena714

me miehter i have to wirte step to how to figure it out

3. AnaheimNena714

uhuuuummm...:(

4. Dido525

QRS is what to TUV ?

5. AnaheimNena714

its triangle QRS congruent to triangle TUV sorry i didnt see that

7. Dido525

Congruent triangles means the triangles so then QS= TS

8. Dido525

Can you solve the rest?

9. AnaheimNena714

im still confused :(

10. ganeshie8

its given that, QS = 3v+2 TV = 7v – 6

11. ganeshie8

so, both lengths have the variable 'v' in them. u need to find 'v' first

12. mina123
13. ganeshie8

since, the triangles are congruent, QS = TV => 3v+2 = 7v-6

14. ganeshie8

4v = 8 v = ?

15. AnaheimNena714

V=2?

16. ganeshie8

thats right !

17. ganeshie8

just put v=2, in the given QS value and find its length

18. ganeshie8

length of QS : QS = 3v+2 = 3(2) + 2 = 6+2 = 8

19. ganeshie8

so we got the length of QS = 8, similarly can u find the length of TV ?

20. AnaheimNena714

ummm its TV=8?

21. AnaheimNena714

i got it thank you

22. ganeshie8

thats right ! yw :)

23. AnaheimNena714

Yay haha thanks you a big help

24. ganeshie8
