will give medal if you solve it
What do you know about angle bisectors?
that's a broad question
Not a broad question tbh
Well I know that bisector divides an angle in half into two equiangular angles
If VX is the bisector of v, then UX = XW
You're right. :)
If they are in half, it means that they are equal, correct?
What is UX and XW?
UV = VW
yes :) now plug in the numbers
perimeter is the sum of the lengths
But he needs to find z first. :)
yea I know that what do I do to solve?
UX=3z-4 and VW=z+6
if UX and VW are equal, then...?
yes, now do the math.
you need help? just find z.
is it gonna come out to a decimal
\[3z-4=z+6\] \[2z=10\] \[z=5\]
No, plug in 5 to z.
Have you noticed that UV has no side length? Have you also noticed that Angle X is a right triangle?
I meant angle VXU. So that means that angle VXW is also right triangle, right?
Have you plugged in 5 in the equations?
yea still haven't got my answer
Plug 5 in 3z-4.
Plug in 5 in z+6.
where do I plug it in
the answer isn't 11 though
They are both 11, right? Now, since the to equation is in the same side, this means that they should be added together.
the answer isn't 22 either
that's just one side!!!! you need to add 3 sides. I'm giving you baby steps lol
So we already have 22. Now, plug in 5 in the next equation which is 5z-1.
What's the answer?
WHat is the answer in 5z-1?
Good! Now, didn't I say that there are to right angles? What are they? This is to solve for the third side.
Look at the picture. :)
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
If you would understand what I'm trying to say, then we should be done by now.
Or you can guess. :/
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
So you do realize that 24 is the other side too, right?
There I gave you the answer. Of course you can add the three sides, right?
yes thank you so its 70
thanks for bearing with me only 9 more yay lol
You can do it! Please mention me so I can be notified that you replied. :)
Hope you can give me a medal though.
And be a fan, if that's what you want. :)
