    \[1x+4 = 4x\]

    or Im sorry dont multiply by two, just solve for x and plugin the x in the equation for line CD and you have your answer.

    but how do i do that?

    use the equation i gave you above.

    you see that both line segments CD and AD are congruent, therefore you can set them equal to each other and solve for x.

    oh ok.so then i would multiply the 2x and 4x together?

  13. VeritasVosLiberabit

    no you will need to use the opposite operations in order to isolate x.

    so i divide? them

    no not divide, try again.

    you can also see it as 4+2x = 4x

    add them

    but how does that = 4x?

    no not add look at you signs

  20. VeritasVosLiberabit

    the line segment CD = AD therefore they are equal.

    the two lines you drew in the middle of them means they are the same length.

    so im not understanding. im so sorry. how do i solve the problem then?

    How do you think you would attempt it? I've pretty much given you all of the information and even how to setup the problem.

    2x+4=4x . i multiply the 2x and 4x to get 8x?

  25. VeritasVosLiberabit

    no you need to subtract 2x from 4x

  26. VeritasVosLiberabit

    rearrange your equation to see this better. 4+2x = 4x

  27. lala365
    • 2 years ago

    so -2x?

    write your whole equation.

  29. lala365

    4+2x=4x

  30. VeritasVosLiberabit
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    now subtract 2x from both sides of your equation.

  31. VeritasVosLiberabit
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    and rewrite what you get.

    x+4=2x

    not quite. that extra x on the left should not be there so it should be 4 = 2x

  34. VeritasVosLiberabit
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    now one more step to solve for x

  35. lala365

    i divide it by 2 right?
