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

amistre64Best 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?
 one year ago

amistre64Best 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
 one year ago

amistre64Best 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?
 one year ago

amistre64Best 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?
 one year ago

amistre64Best 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?
 one year ago

UmmmHELPBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
divide 3 on both sides to get v
 one year ago

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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?
 one year ago

amistre64Best 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
 one year ago

amistre64Best 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
 one year ago

amistre64Best 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
