Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can equate vertex with vertex then; a=p b=q c=r for starters

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since b=q, and they give you eqaustions for b and q; then write the equations equal to each other and it should be a simple matter to solve for v

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah but Im not sure how to do that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is the equation for b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is the equation for q? since b = q then its also true that: (equation for b) = (equation for q)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, and can you finish the setup? ill help you thru it once i see that you can at least set it up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, then (equation for b) = (equation for q) 5v+6 = 8v9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then do you subtract 5 from both sides?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1close, there is a v stuck to the 5, so lets subtract 5v from each side for starters

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15v+6 = 8v9 5v 5v  6 = 3v  9 what do you think another good move would be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct 6 = 3v  9 +9 +9  15 = 3v only one more move left, what do you think we should do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0divide 3 on both sides to get v

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1excellent 15/3 = 3v/3 5 = v so now that we know a normal looking value for v, we can use it to find the values of b and q right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then what is our solution :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like plug 5 into the original problem?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, and it should work in either equation for b or for q and give us the same value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it looks like you might have blended the 2 equations into an abomination of desolation :) b = 5v+6 = 5(5)+6 q = 8v9 =8(5)9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 16 and 31? I feel like thats totally off

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1b = 5v+6 = 5(5)+6 = 25 + 6 = 31 q = 8v9 =8(5)9 = 40  9 = 31 b = q = 31
