Quadrilateral LMNO has diagonals that intersect at point P. If LP = 6x – 5, MP = y + 25, NP = 4x + 17, and OP = 5y + 29, find the values of x and y such that LMNO is a parallelogram. A. x = 11, y = 1 B. x = 10, y = –1 C. x = 11, y = –1 D. x = –1, y = 11

    Remember, parallelogram's diagonals split each other in half

    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 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

    im thinking B because the Y are the same

    for OP and MP the answer is -1 and equals 24 for both

    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

    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.

    Ah that makes it easier. So i would suggest you to take algebra 1 consecutively with geometry, which will make life a lot easier.

    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
