    you suppose to find the problem to that rhombus because it's a parallelogram

    and the 3x goes on your right side and the w 12 goes on the top right corner

    Rhombus is a kind of parallelogram, I just don't really understand your image

    Is that the correct answer

    the diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other you can write 8= 2x

    also, 3x=12

    Or yeah haha just go with phi, I'm stupid when it comes to geometry xD

    so how do you do that cause I did it different

  33. phi
    • one year ago

    Medals 1

    if you use 2x= 8 divide both sides by 2, like this \[ \frac{2x}{2} = \frac{8}{2} \] or \[ \frac{2}{2}x = \frac{8}{2} \]

  34. phi
    • one year ago

    on the left side 2/2 is 1 and 1 times x is x what do you get on the right side?

    ok now I see but it's still the same answer I got 4 right

  36. Astrophysics

    Yeah I had got 4 as well haha

  37. phi

    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 1

    yes, x=4 but you should be learning how to get the answer... it is not the answer that counts, it is learning how to get it. if you use 3x=12 divide both sides by 3 \[ \frac{3x}{3} = \frac{12}{3} \] what do you get for x?

    you can't say that. the diagonals are not the same size

    if you get x=4 doing that, you "lucked out"

  41. youngnephew34

    Medals 1

    I consul out the x and the 3x-2 =1x 1x+12=8 subtract both sides gives mi 1x=4 x=4

    |dw:1440158336109:dw| this is what I had originally as they bisect 3x=12, 2x = 8 @youngnephew34 bisect literally means to divide in two equal sides.

  43. phi
    • one year ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 1

    1x + 12= 8 1x + 12-12 = 8-12 x= -4 so you don't get x=4

    we know x=4, and so we can figure out one of the diagonals is 16 and the other diagonal is 24 18 does not equal 24 but that is what you are saying if you write 2x+8= 3x+12 <-- not true.
