VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
or is that a 2x

\[2x+4 = 4x\]

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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.

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
use the equation i gave you above.
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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?
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no you will need to use the opposite operations in order to isolate x.
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no not divide, try again.
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you can also see it as 4+2x = 4x
 one year ago

lala365Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
but how does that = 4x?
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no not add look at you signs
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the line segment CD = AD therefore they are equal.
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the two lines you drew in the middle of them means they are the same length.
 one year ago

lala365Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so im not understanding. im so sorry. how do i solve the problem then?
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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.
 one year ago

lala365Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
2x+4=4x . i multiply the 2x and 4x to get 8x?
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no you need to subtract 2x from 4x
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
rearrange your equation to see this better. 4+2x = 4x
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
write your whole equation.
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
now subtract 2x from both sides of your equation.
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and rewrite what you get.
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
not quite. that extra x on the left should not be there so it should be 4 = 2x
 one year ago

VeritasVosLiberabitBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
now one more step to solve for x
 one year ago

lala365Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i divide it by 2 right?
