What do you know about angle bisectors?

- ASAPT

that's a broad question

- anonymous

Not a broad question tbh

- ASAPT

Well I know that bisector divides an angle in half into two equiangular angles

- anonymous

If VX is the bisector of v, then UX = XW

- anonymous

You're right. :)

- ASAPT

Thanks ;)

- anonymous

If they are in half, it means that they are equal, correct?

- anonymous

What is UX and XW?

- ASAPT

equal angles?

- triciaal

UV = VW

- anonymous

yes :) now plug in the numbers

- triciaal

perimeter is the sum of the lengths

- anonymous

But he needs to find z first. :)

- ASAPT

yea I know that what do I do to solve?

- anonymous

UX=3z-4 and VW=z+6

- anonymous

if UX and VW are equal, then...?

- ASAPT

so 3z-4=z+6

- anonymous

yes, now do the math.

- anonymous

you need help? just find z.

- ASAPT

is it gonna come out to a decimal

- anonymous

No.

- anonymous

\[3z-4=z+6\]
\[2z=10\]
\[z=5\]

- anonymous

No, plug in 5 to z.

- anonymous

Have you noticed that UV has no side length? Have you also noticed that Angle X is a right triangle?

- anonymous

I meant angle VXU. So that means that angle VXW is also right triangle, right?

- ASAPT

yea

- anonymous

Have you plugged in 5 in the equations?

- ASAPT

yea still haven't got my answer

- anonymous

Plug 5 in 3z-4.

- anonymous

Plug in 5 in z+6.

- ASAPT

where do I plug it in

- anonymous

Z.

- ASAPT

the answer isn't 11 though

- anonymous

They are both 11, right? Now, since the to equation is in the same side, this means that they should be added together.

- anonymous

So 11+11=?

- ASAPT

the answer isn't 22 either

- anonymous

that's just one side!!!! you need to add 3 sides. I'm giving you baby steps lol

- anonymous

So we already have 22. Now, plug in 5 in the next equation which is 5z-1.

- anonymous

What's the answer?

- ASAPT

46??

- anonymous

WHat is the answer in 5z-1?

- ASAPT

24

- anonymous

Good! Now, didn't I say that there are to right angles? What are they? This is to solve for the third side.

- anonymous

two**

- anonymous

Look at the picture. :)

- ASAPT

I don't remember we've spent awhile on this one problem and I still have 9 more after this and a time limit plus ive been working on this since 1:30 and its 10:23 I really just want to get it done

- anonymous

If you would understand what I'm trying to say, then we should be done by now.

- anonymous

Or you can guess. :/

- ASAPT

I know you're right my brain is shutting down im so tired but I need to get this done and no I tried that I wish you would just show me how to get to the answer in your response with the answer in there I learn a lot better that way

- anonymous

So you do realize that 24 is the other side too, right?

- anonymous

There I gave you the answer. Of course you can add the three sides, right?

- ASAPT

yes thank you so its 70

- ASAPT

thanks for bearing with me only 9 more yay lol

- anonymous

You can do it! Please mention me so I can be notified that you replied. :)

- anonymous

Hope you can give me a medal though.

- anonymous

And be a fan, if that's what you want. :)
