Sorry that you cried...you need to view this as two triangles, try drawing the two triangles.

Now since both triangles are "congruent" then side "ST" must be parallel to "RQ"
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes

steatement 3:

  • anonymous
yep
anonymous

Okay, not sure about statement 4.."similar" means basic shape is same, but not necessarily congruent.
anonymous
  • anonymous
they both share angle P

60: (60+x) = 48: (48+36) these are proportions
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
48+36=84
anonymous
  • anonymous
60+x=84 ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, they are proportionate, so they wont equal exactly.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ahhh
anonymous
  • anonymous
60/(60+x) = 48/(48+36)
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 48/84
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1436523583418:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
84*60=(60+x)48 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
isnt it 48 PLUS 36?
anonymous
  • anonymous
48+36 = 84 therefore we have: |dw:1436523838479:dw|

Since the triangles are simi9lar, corresponding sides have proportional lengths. |dw:1436566575542:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 5040=48(60+x)
anonymous
  • anonymous
then i distribute 48?
mathstudent55

5040=2880+48x ?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Don't do any calculations. The question is only asking how to complete setting up the proportion.

5040 = 2880 - 48x 5040-2880 = 48 x 2160 =48x x=45

Need to follow advice of @mathstudent55 as more qualified than me
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank you both so much!
