    1st 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?

    Not exactly - try this: what is length of AB and AC? Then divide AB/AC to find the ratio.

    Correct - 1/2 is right now because the triangles are similar, BE/CD=AB/AC

  24. mckenzieandjesus

    so 1/2=1/2?

    put in the values of BE and CD and ratio of AB/AC in: BE/CD = AB/AC What will you get?

  35. sdfgsdfgs

    YES, you just missed the x there, it should be 3x / 48 = 30 / 60 Solve for x and you get the ans.

    3x / 48 =1/2 then multiply both sides by 48
