what do you know about trapezoids?
Well i know it has two pairs of parallel sides.

if you are able to prove that QM and QN are congruent, and RP and RO are congruent, then you would be able to prove that the figure is trapezoid \[QR=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }(MP+NO)\]
let us try to solve for the x
what should we do to get the value of x? I provided the equation for the medial of trapezoid for you to use to find the value of x. I prefer that you participate in solving and not be a spectator.
do you want to do this together or what @UnicornPoopCookies
I got 12?
show your solution
hello @unicornpoopcookies the answer IS NOT 12 show how you got 12
QR = 1/2(MP+NO) x+15 = 1/2 [(9x -42) + 30] // perform the operation in the parentheses x+15 = 1/2 (9x -12) //to make our problem easier by multiply both sides by 2. this will cancel out 1/2 and 2 and will give us: 2 (x+15) = 9x - 12 // distributive property on left hand side (LHS) of the equation 2x + 30 = 9x - 12 // isolate terms, our x, into the LHS by subtracting -9x on both sides of the equation. this will give us 2x -9x + 30 = 9x - 9x -12 // perform the operation. -7x + 30 = -12 // continue to isolate our x by subtracting 30 on both sides of the equation. this will give us: -7x + 30 - 30 = -12 - 30 // perform the operation -7x = -42 // look for the value of x by dividing both sides of the equation by -7 x = 6
Yeah i figured it out ether way thank you i just had to look over my notes i was way off.
