which one

the longer base is 2a units the shorter base is _____ units
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you sure?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
2a is the longer base, a is the length of half of the longer base
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
that does not tell us the length of the shorter base
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you tell me
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
hmm something seems missing here, let me think
jim_thompson5910

how are you getting b?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yeah something seems to be missing
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
if you knew the shorter base, then you could figure out where T and W are
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
but it doesn't give out that info
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
no we have no guarantee that the shorter base is half of the longer base
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
it's missing info, there's no way anyone can know for sure
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
if the shorter base was 2b units then W would be at (b,c) since you go out b units to the right, then up c units
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
but this piece of info isn't given, so you can't answer the question
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yep that's IF the shorter base is 2b units
