if you cut the figure up like this |dw:1353204276912:dw|
you'll see that 2 triangles form
namely, the smaller triangles inside the larger ones
highlighted here|dw:1353204485777:dw|
so if we know this |dw:1353204546161:dw|
then we can say this as well |dw:1353204577254:dw|
ohk yes i see that
so then can we say that the other side is 9 as well?
let me think, I'm looking for justification that the two larger triangles are congruent
oh wait, not sure why i didn't see this til now lol
the smaller two triangles in the lower right corner are isosceles triangles
you have to draw another line to see this if you can't
so that's why we can add the extra 9 on there the 6 comes from the fact that 9+6 = 15
so to finish things off, we get this full picture |dw:1353204976827:dw|
ohk why did u choose 9 and 6... those arent the only things that add together to get 15
yes, but the 9 is locked in, which is why the second segment has to be a 6
if you don't see what I mean, go back to a previous drawing where I show how the second 9 (the lower 9) shows up
i get it so 58 is the answer
