Nice drawing. :-) Any ideas how to start?

Hm, that could work. Let me show you how I would start it.

alright ~`

Pyth used 3 times on the 3 right triangles

Then I used substitution to simplify one equation to only one variable

wait what did you substitute ??

|dw:1438644230084:dw|

|dw:1438644298448:dw|

See how I did that?

pythagorean theorem right ?

3 times, then substituted to make one equation with only x

this formula is the pythagorean one right ?

it has the times 2 on each number ~

|dw:1438644708961:dw| All three of these are Pythagorean

And those are squares, not times 2

ohhh ~ My dumb mistake ! hahaha ~

:-) No worries

Quadratic

alright ~~ but i never used it for this

The formula your teacher gave you was quadratic

oh well Im sorry its just super hard with all these different equation types

No worries, I know it can be tricky to keep up with it all.

ill try my best, but what are we trying to find first the x or y?

the problem says find x and y

We are finding x first just because it worked out to be easier to solve for it first.

alright, so its \[6^{2}\]

the equation = to
