Hint: EF = FG Why is that true? Because the triangles are similar by AAS, so each corresponding pair of pieces are congruent (EF corresponds to FG) since EF = FG, we can say n+5 = 2n-6

oh, ok.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
solve n+5 = 2n-6 for n then use that solution to compute the value of 2n-6

I know they are equal I'm just having a hard time finding n

Equate the two segments: \[n + 5 = 2n - 6\] Therefore: \[n = 11\] and FG = 16

n - 2n = -n will be on the left side, so we now have |dw:1449802266731:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
now we subtract 5 from both sides |dw:1449802291956:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
we will end up with -n = -11 which is equivalent to n = +11 or just n = 11
