it's a KITE

3. alwaysdancing18

4. mayankdevnani

opposite sides are equal

5. alwaysdancing18

obviously

6. mayankdevnani

and find the values

7. alwaysdancing18

I dont know how to set the equation....

8. AravindG

opposit sides are not equal, it is the adjacent sides that are equal

9. AravindG

so 3x+6=6x+1

10. alwaysdancing18

well thats what I was thinking when he said that

11. mayankdevnani

opp. sides are equal so that 6x+1=3x+6 and 2y+6=4y-3 and then find values of x and y

12. mayankdevnani

yaaa correct!!!! @AravindG

13. AravindG

2y+6=4y-3

14. AravindG

solve for x and y and be happy :)

15. alwaysdancing18

I just look at the lines there. if they are the same then whala and this one question will not make me happy.... I have so many more

16. mayankdevnani

can you find the values? @alwaysdancing18

17. alwaysdancing18

y is not a whole number? I got 4 R1

20. mayankdevnani

21. mayankdevnani

22. alwaysdancing18

23. mayankdevnani
