how did u get 15, did u take a proportion ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont know how to do this problem
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
ok np, do u knw wat a proportion is ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
wat about "ratio"
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
do u knw what a "ratio" is ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
nope
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
wat about "median of a triangle"
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
those are the terms u need to knw to solve these problems. first get familiar wid them
anonymous
  • anonymous
nope
anonymous
  • anonymous
can you help me
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
i can help u solve this if u also try a bit
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
look at triangle ABC
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
BD is called median
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
cuz BD divides the triangle into two equal parts
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
now look at the triangle EFG and tell me whats the median
anonymous
  • anonymous
3
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
my i knw why do u think 3 is median
anonymous
  • anonymous
3 can solve for x and 3 plus 2 wpuld be 5
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
*may
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
forget it
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
look at triangle EFG, can u locate the line segment FH ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
thats the median for that triangle, cuz it is dividing that triangle into two equal parts

15
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
show me how u got 15
anonymous
  • anonymous
im guessin i dont know how to do this
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
then you should know how to do this
anonymous
  • anonymous
can you just tell me
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
a hint
anonymous
  • anonymous
5/11=x+2/2x+7
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
thats correct. cross multiply and solve, what u waiting for ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats as far as i can get
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
next steps :- 1. cross multiply 2. solve x
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do i cross multiply
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
http://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/cross-multiply.html
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
that site explains better "how to cross multiply"
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
\(\large \frac{5}{11}= \frac{x+2}{2x+7} \)
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
\(5(2x+7) = 11(x+2)\) can u take it from here ?

you finished with the previous problem ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
good :) wat u got for x ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Side-Angle-Side Similarity Postulate Side-Side-Side Similarity Postulate Similarity cannot be determined. Angle-Angle Similarity Postulate

  • anonymous
thise are the answers
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
hmm i asked u a q above
anonymous
  • anonymous
theres no x
