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

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

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

    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?

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

  39. anonymous

    So 11+11=?

    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.

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