corresponding sides of the 2 triangles are in the same ratio identify which angles are equal in order to determine corresponding sides
Try again! < BAD = < ACD ( because they both make a right angle with < CAD)
right because 5 and x are corresponding sides
okay.. so would you divide 5?
now angle ABD and CAD are equal so their corresponding sides can be written as a fraction also
no we need another 2 sides to form an equation one from small triangle ( which will be in numerator) and one from larger trianglw)
side corresponding to angle ABD = x CAD = ?
right so we have 5 / x = x /9 solve for x
i'm sorry.. >.< i'm running on no sleep &so my brain is definetly not functioning right. i noticed it was wrong after i noticed
honestly have no clue what i was trying to multiply. hahah thank you so much. c:
yea - tiredness affects your brain alright...
so you can identify the correct choice now?
yes. c: thank you so much for baring with me.
no x^2 = 45 x = sqrt45
