I see that 5 would be the BA, stuck on how it should be set up

Since BA is a midsegment, BZ is also 5. |dw:1434749558757:dw| The triangles are similar. \[\frac{ XB }{ XZ }=\frac{ BA }{ ZY }\] \[\frac{ 5 }{ 10 }=\frac{ x-1 }{ 10 }\]

"Mid segment" means B and A are mid-points of XZ and XY respectively. Thus XBA and XZY are similar triangles.

do I cross multiply

  • anonymous
yes, you can, but you don't really have to. Both denominators are 10, so you can just say 5 = x -1

then add one to both sides which gives me 6

The segment BA is 5, but x = 6.
