UmmmHELP
Given that AE ll BD , solve for x. The diagram is not drawn to scale.
If a line is parallel to one side of a triangle and intersects the other two, then it divides them proportionally.
11/x = 7/5 Cross multiply and solve for x.
@Directrix I got 7.86 but my options are 7 6/7 3 2/11 15 2/5 26 2/5
I don't do decimals so I'll do fractions. 11/x = 7/5 7x = 55 x = 55/7 ---> Is that 7 and 6/7?
thought so thats what I ended up picking! thanks!
I just realized that we are doing two different problems at the same time here. What about the other one? Did you solve it?
no I didnt I was still confused and im running out of time :o so frustrated
