Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hang on. What subject is this? I mean I know it's a form of math, but is there like a specific name for it? Is it a certain type of geometry?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think I might get it now. So the ratio means that whatever AB is, BC is 3.67 times bigger.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I think what you need to do is divide 33 by 3.67. Whatever the result of that is is X.
