Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Same 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You 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?
