Given:AL=SK Prove:AS=LK Here are my statements leading to my proff: 1.AL=SK 2.LS-LS 3.AL+LS=SK+LS 4.AL+LS=AS 5.SK+LS=LK 6.AS=LKFound 2 solutions by richwmiller, JBarnum:Answer by richwmiller(9132)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!It would be nice to know what this figure is and where these lines are that you speak of Answer by JBarnum(2044)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Given:AL=SK Prove:AS=LK lets make these numbers so you can see it a bit better {ex: A=1 L=8 S=2 K=4 so (1)(8)= (2)(4)} 1.AL=SK (1x8)=(2x4) this is equal 2.LS-LS (8x2)-(8x2) ? 3.AL+LS=SK+LS (1x8)+(8x2)=(2x4)+(8x2) this is equal 4.AL+LS=AS (1x8)+(8x2)=(1x2) => 8+16=2 => 24=2 this cant happen 5.SK+LS=LK (2x4)+(8x2)=(8x4) => 8+16=32 => 24=32 this cant happen 6.AS=LK (1x2)=(8x4) 2=32 cant happen maybe im misunderstanding something this is how it normally goes {ex: A=1 L=8 S=2 K=4} AL=SK (1x8)=(2x4) A=SK/L 1=(2X4)/8, A/S=K/L 1/2=4/8 L=SK/A 8=(2X4)/1, L/S=K/A 8/2=4/1 S=AL/K 2=(1X8)/4, S/A=L/K 2/1=8/4 K=AL/S 4=(1X8)/2, K/A=L/S 4/1=8/2 THESE ARE ALL EQUAL AND POSSIBLE BUT IF A=K AND L=S ITS POSSIBLE 1=1 AND 2=2 1x2=1x2 AL=SK A=K L=S AS=LK HOPE SOME OF THIS HELPS
