that is a leg, so, a^2+300^2=350^2

Okay; let me solve. One moment,

I dont have a calculator with me but if you did sqrt(350^2300^2), it should be right.

I think it is 300.

I did \[\frac{ 180 }{ x } = \frac{ 300 }{ 500 }\]

Proportions,yes; since 180 (ce) is the same side of the triangle as CN.

Mimi_x3Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
So both ways got the right answer. YOu should check your algebra.
 one year ago

help123please.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Okay. So it was 350/x = 300/500 or x/350=500/300 ?
 one year ago

help123please.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
you just chose to do the large figure first.
 one year ago

help123please.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
so i write 583.333333333333 as my answer?
