Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11st prob 1st  u may want to repost the second one separately.... triangle ABE and ACD are similar so their sides should be in the same ratio ok?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how would I solve it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What is the ratio of AB to AC?

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not exactly  try this: what is length of AB and AC? Then divide AB/AC to find the ratio.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What is length of AB?

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How about AC? From point A to point C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would the answer be b?

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nope, b is not the right ans sorry!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct  1/2 is right now because the triangles are similar, BE/CD=AB/AC

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What are length of BE and CD?

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait cd is 48

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, length between point B and E? Yes, CD is 48

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im confused of how to figure that out..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Read your picture plz  the length is shown as what you are trying to solve here

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1put in the values of BE and CD and ratio of AB/AC in: BE/CD = AB/AC What will you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do i do 3/48 and 30/60?

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1YES, you just missed the x there, it should be 3x / 48 = 30 / 60 Solve for x and you get the ans.

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.030/60= 1/2 but how do i solve the other side?

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13x / 48 =1/2 then multiply both sides by 48

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would the answer by 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What do u get by multiply both sides by 48?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i cant put x in my calculator when i do 3/48*48 i got 3

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Put the calculator away, use it later.

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and 3x/48 * 48 is equal to what?

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 3x }{ 48 } * 48\] = ?

mckenzieandjesus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i cant do that without a calculator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A calculator cannot handle the "3x" part for u  sorry!

mckenzieandjesus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the answer is still 3x

sdfgsdfgs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Good! so we now have: 3x=24 solve for x plz
