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

    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

    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

    8v-9 is Q

    so 8v-9=5v+6??

    good, then (equation for b) = (equation for q) 5v+6 = 8v-9

    so then do you subtract 5 from both sides?

    close, there is a v stuck to the 5, so lets subtract 5v from each side for starters

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

    add 9 to both sides?

    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?

    Like plug 5 into the original problem?

    yes, and it should work in either equation for b or for q and give us the same value

    5(5)-9?

    it looks like you might have blended the 2 equations into an abomination of desolation :) b = 5v+6 = 5(5)+6 q = 8v-9 =8(5)-9

    so 16 and 31? I feel like thats totally off

  26. amistre64

    b = 5v+6 = 5(5)+6 = 25 + 6 = 31 q = 8v-9 =8(5)-9 = 40 - 9 = 31 b = q = 31
