@mathstudent55 can you help?

- mathstudent55

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.

- anonymous

hmmm im having trouble

- mathstudent55

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

- anonymous

yeah so 6x = 4

- mathstudent55

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)

- mathstudent55

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

- anonymous

oops i meant 6x - 4

- mathstudent55

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

- anonymous

6x - 4 = 5x

- mathstudent55

Now subtract 5x from both sides.

- anonymous

is the final answer -1x = 4?

- anonymous

i mean -4

- anonymous

it cant be

- anonymous

1x - 4

- mathstudent55

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?

- mathstudent55

6x - 4 = 5x
6x - 5x = 4

- anonymous

is it 1x?

- anonymous

so 1x = 4

- anonymous

so is 3 the final answer?

- anonymous

no because 5 + 3 is not 9

- anonymous

ughh im getting frustrated lol

- mathstudent55

1x = 4 means x = 4. x = 4 is the final answer

- anonymous

lol i completely missed that

- mathstudent55

1x is the same as x.
1b is the same as b.
etc.

- anonymous

yeah i forgot about that. Thanks!
