@mathstudent55 can you help?
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.
hmmm im having trouble
First, you need to distribute the 2 on the left side.
yeah so 6x = 4
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)
oops i meant 6x - 4
Good, now that is equal to 5x, so write that.
6x - 4 = 5x
Now subtract 5x from both sides.
is the final answer -1x = 4?
i mean -4
it cant be
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?
6x - 4 = 5x 6x - 5x = 4
is it 1x?
so 1x = 4
so is 3 the final answer?
no because 5 + 3 is not 9
ughh im getting frustrated lol
1x = 4 means x = 4. x = 4 is the final answer
lol i completely missed that
1x is the same as x. 1b is the same as b. etc.
yeah i forgot about that. Thanks!
