Find the number of inches in the length of DC.Answer by nyc_function(2733)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A rhombus has equal measure all around. This means we can equate the given expressions and solve for x as step one. 3x + 2 = x + 12 3x - x = -2 + 12 2x = 10 x = 10/2 x = 5 Now, side AB = side DC. AB was given to be 3x + 2. Let x = 5 AB = 3(5) + 2 AB = 15 + 2 AB = 17 inches If AB = DC, then DC = 17 inches
