hopefully that helps you see how to get x

what should I do next?

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
you would use the pythagorean theorem a^2 + b^2 = c^2 6^2 + 8^2 = x^2 solve for x

Uh.. the answers are a lot smaller than 10,000

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
how are you getting 10,000?

6^2+8^2=100^2=10,000

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
it should be 6^2 + 8^2 = 10^2

not 100^2

so somehow an extra zero popped up

there's 10 as an answer on here, but not 100.

\[\large 6^2 + 8^2 = x^2\] \[\large 36 + 64 = x^2\] \[\large 100 = x^2\] \[\large x^2 = 100\] \[\large x = \sqrt{100}\] \[\large x = 10\]

Hint: the two triangles are congruent by the SSS property of congruence
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
if two triangles are congruent, what can we say about their corresponding parts?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
let's say these two triangles are congruent dw:1369697511047:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
and these two angles are corresponding angles dw:1369697556004:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
since the two triangles are congruent, the corresponding angles are congruent dw:1369697587635:dw

Emily778 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay, what next?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
well what can you tell me about the angles 77 and x ?

Emily778 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
THE SAME..! :D

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
yep, the two are corresponding angles so x = 77
