If they are tangent, they are congruent meaning they have the same side.

wait, so Tangent means they are congruent? So it also means that x = 7?
anonymous
  • anonymous
is that \[1/3x\] or \[\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }x\]?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no but AB has to equal to 7 by solving for x
anonymous
  • anonymous
since BC is 7

Since both lines are equal the function must be equal to each other.

so what do I have to do, to find x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes. Is this what the question asked you to do? Find x?
anonymous

\[\frac{ 1 }{ 3}x+5=7\] This is how you set them equal to each other. This is like pre algebra I think.
