Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Vs should equal 14 im not completely sure but if they are similar then Vs=Ts

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they are two triangles connected, then vs has a long arrow passing v,t, and s with a x on it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its looks like that but with the numbers that i gave you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you match the corresponding sides and write them as ratios this means \[\frac{VS}{TS} = \frac{VQ}{TR}\] using the values of the sides \[\frac{ x}{8} = \frac{10}{6}\] now you can solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0obviously thats why i said that the picture is the same but not the numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well it's the same technique \[\frac{VS}{TS} = \frac{VQ}{RT}\] substitute your measurements \[\frac{x}{14} = \frac{8}{4}\] solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay well i cross multiplied and got 4x=112, divided both by 4 and got x=28

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's what I got... I just looked at the right hand sides and simplified the fraction to 2/1 so larger measurement is double the smaller saves using algebra
