Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you will get x^2/4 + 3x^2/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2thats how 2nd equation becomes first equation... on how first becomes the second, subtract x^2/4 on both sides to isolate h^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(x^2/4 + h^2 =x^2 \\ x^2/4  x^2/4 + h^2 = x^2  x^2/4 \\ h^2 = x^2 (11/4) = .. \) got these steps?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i just don't understand the part where \[\frac{ x^2 }{ 4 } +h^2 =x^2 \rightarrow h^2 = \frac{ 3x^2 }{ 4 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah, x^2/4 is moved to other side of = by subtracting it from both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how does this turn into a fraction?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2x^2  x^2/4 now we see "x^2" in both the terms so we factor it out. x^2 (11/4) that makes it x^2 * (3/4) or 3x^2/4
