Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I saw that. But which SPECIFIC part do you not understand? Did you understand everything up until the 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well as you saw before it, they divided \[\large \frac{1}{\frac{1}{2}}\] If you divide a fraction, it's the same as multiplying by the inverse. \[\large 1 \div \frac{1}{2}~=~1 \times \frac{2}{1}\] is this what confused you?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, so in that whole equation all of those are equal??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01 divided by .5 = to 2, but not equal to the first part. Do you understand what i'm asking?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Tbh, not really. Are you asking about the properties of a 306090 triangle or the properties of fractions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait a minute when the example put it like that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Their explanation really was offfocus. They were comparing the problem they gave you to the example triangle, and I think that's what caused the confusion.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ x }{ 2\sqrt{3}} =\frac{ 1 }{ \frac{ 1 }{ 2} }=2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isn't it when they put it like that, it makes it equal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. The \(\large \frac{x}{2\sqrt{3}}\) is from your triangle and the \(\large \frac{1}{\frac{1}{2}}\) was from the example triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They were comparing the ratios, although the "=" wasn't the best way to do it.
