we can equate vertex with vertex then; a=p b=q c=r for starters

amistre64 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
since 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

yeah but Im not sure how to do that

what is the equation for b?
 2 years ago

amistre64 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what is the equation for q? since b = q then its also true that: (equation for b) = (equation for q)

good, and can you finish the setup? ill help you thru it once i see that you can at least set it up

so 8v9=5v+6??
 2 years ago

amistre64 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
good, then (equation for b) = (equation for q) 5v+6 = 8v9

so then do you subtract 5 from both sides?
 2 years ago

amistre64 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
close, there is a v stuck to the 5, so lets subtract 5v from each side for starters

5v+6 = 8v9 5v 5v  6 = 3v  9 what do you think another good move would be?

add 9 to both sides?
 2 years ago

amistre64 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
correct 6 = 3v  9 +9 +9  15 = 3v only one more move left, what do you think we should do?

divide 3 on both sides to get v

excellent 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?

then what is our solution :)

Like plug 5 into the original problem?
 2 years ago

amistre64 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, and it should work in either equation for b or for q and give us the same value

amistre64 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it 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

so 16 and 31? I feel like thats totally off
 2 years ago

amistre64 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
b = 5v+6 = 5(5)+6 = 25 + 6 = 31 q = 8v9 =8(5)9 = 40  9 = 31 b = q = 31
