BDFH is a rectangle with a width of 5 and a length of 12. One diagonal is 2x + 3y and the other diagonal is x + 8y. Find the values of x and y.
x = 4 and y = 1
x = 4 and y = 1
x = 5 and y = 1
x = 5 and y = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15^2 = 5 * 5 = 25 and 12^2 = 12 * 12 = 144 add of them, and take squareroot after that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, the diagonal represnted by equations : d=2x + 3y and d=x+8y and we knowed that the length of diagonals of rectangle is same, so 2x+3y=13 and x+8y=13 solve for x and y by elimination or subt method
