Same idea as before. Multiply two segments of one chord and set equal to the product of the two segments of the other chord: 2(3x  2) = 5x

Now you need to solve that equation for x.

First, you need to distribute the 2 on the left side.

An example of the distributive property os: 2(4x  8) = 2*4x  2*8 = 8x  16 Now apply the distributive property to 2(3x  2)

There is no equal sign inside the left side. The left side is simply 2(3x  2)

Good, now that is equal to 5x, so write that.

Now subtract 5x from both sides.

is the final answer 1x = 4?

You are very close. You are correct that there is a 4 on the right side. Look on the left side. You have 6x on the left side and you subtracted from it 5x. What is 6x  5x?

mathstudent55Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
6x  4 = 5x 6x  5x = 4

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so is 3 the final answer?
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no because 5 + 3 is not 9

ughh im getting frustrated lol

1x = 4 means x = 4. x = 4 is the final answer
 one year ago

Mrfootballman97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
lol i completely missed that
