Remember, parallelogram's diagonals split each other in half
i am still confused
In wordy terms, they bisect each other
So LP = PN and MP = PO
It's quite simple, you just have to know the properties
i still dont get how to find x and y
okay so it isnt A
I told you. Look at the picture. The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. This means LP = PN and MP = PO. What is so hard about that. You have what they say LP, PN, MP, and PO are, so plug their values in.
Just a side note, PN and NP are exactly the same thing
Did you get your answer yet?
im thinking B because the Y are the same
? Y are the same? what are you talking about
the y value is -1
for OP and MP the answer is -1 and equals 24 for both
but i dont get the LP and NP
Jesus christ -_- LP = 6x – 5, MP = y + 25, NP = 4x + 17, and OP = 5y + 29 And the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. This means LP = NP and MP = OP. So; 6x-5 = 4x+17 and y + 25 = 5y + 29
Did you take algebra 1???
no i took buisness math because it was a hell of a lot easier.
then how are taking geometry, you can't unless you take algebra 1
they by passed me lol
ok i dont get 6x-5 = 4x+17 because neither 11 or 10 works
oh wait ITS 11!!
ok i understand that part
ok the answer is C thank u
OMG here's what you gotta do. Call whatever class you're taking Cancel it Sign up for Algebra 1. Finish algebra 1. Come back and then take geometry. Because you can't keep on just doing guess and check or plugging in x for y. It just doesn't work when you get to the harder problems.
I'll draw out the correct way to do it.
I take geometry online. Im finished with highschool. I cant just cancel a class.
LP = 6x – 5, MP = y + 25, NP = 4x + 17, and OP = 5y + 29 And the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. This means LP = NP and MP = OP. So; 6x-5 = 4x+17 and y + 25 = 5y + 29 |dw:1436840739993:dw|
Ah that makes it easier. So i would suggest you to take algebra 1 consecutively with geometry, which will make life a lot easier.
The lazy way out never works out, trust me on that
Dang i sound like a mom right now
lmao i cant take anymore classes geometry is the only one i need im just worrying about finishing this geometry course before august so i never have to take math again
i already took algebra 1 i just got a really low grade but i still passed, and that was 4 years ago
Thats gonna be a truckload, since it seems you can't isolate variables and etc. I would suggest u check this out http://www.purplemath.com/modules/solvelin.htm
You at least need to know how to isolate variables for geometry, because plugging in stuff takes a truckload of time
na im 50% ahead of the program. most answers are online lmao
