I put in the diagram
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
so you do 15+25
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
or would you do 15x2
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
so you doing 15x15
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes because 15x15 is the same thing as 15^2
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
so it will be 225=625
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hold on let me check everything first
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sorry man didnt see the 25 was the hypotenuse(C) What I meant was 25^2-15^2=B^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
When you get B^2, you find the square root of that, You do the same thing there, but this time its B^2+9^2=X^2 The finally square root of X

9x9=81
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
ok I got a different question
anonymous
  • anonymous
What is it
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
when you do 625-225=400 and you try 400x400160000
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
do you do 160000=81
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
I mean 160000+81
anonymous
  • anonymous
No after you get 400 you have to find the square root of 400
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
oh ok
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
it's 20
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
so you will do 40+81

Use the attached theorem to get: x is to 25 as 9 is to 15 x / 25 = 9 / 15 Solve that for x.

121/25 gave me 4.84
anonymous
  • anonymous
But you really dont have to yet, because then you have to use 20^2*9^2=C^2

  • Directrix
The triangle is not a right triangle. There is no hypotenuse or right angle. The Pythagorean Theorem does not apply here.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I thought so
anonymous
  • anonymous
I sort of doubted it
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
40x81 right or nah
anonymous
  • anonymous
dont think so
Directrix
  • Directrix
Solve this for x: |dw:1447120695827:dw|

40x18=720
anonymous
  • anonymous
So .6?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is dividing both separate legs(a) a rule?
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
I did 20x18 it gave me 720 and then I did 20+18 and that gave 38
anonymous
  • anonymous
No that is out of the question, we are using the theorem directrix gave us http://assets.openstudy.com/updates/attachments/564142f1e4b067a7dcb97330-directrix-1447120314231-triangleanglebisectortheorem.jpg
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
but 6 isn't up there tho it 's 6
Directrix
  • Directrix
The answer is not 6. |dw:1447121505057:dw|
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
is it suppose to be 5/25
anonymous
  • anonymous
what are the options really. is it 5/25 or 5 2/5?
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
5/25 =5 but what does 5 2/5 = to
Directrix
  • Directrix
|dw:1447121819795:dw|
Directrix
  • Directrix
>>5/25 =5 NO 5/25 = 1/5
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
it gave me 0.65
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
5/25=25 and 1/5=5
Directrix
  • Directrix
What is 75 divided by 5 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Its not division it is shown as a fraction.
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
75/5=15
youngnephew34
  • youngnephew34
so is it 15
Directrix
  • Directrix
Correct.

  • anonymous
@Directrix Where did you get 9/15 and how did it become 3/5
