 Question 60754: This is a similar polygon question involving a pentagon. I couldn't find the topic in Algebra but it's from an algebra class. Need to find x of the segment vw The two pentagons are similar. The first one the the sides for Q to R is 4 and R to S is 3 and S to T is 5 and T to P is 3 and P to Q is 2. These sides will somehow apply with the second pentagon. The sides that are suppose to be the comparison for the VW I think is the PQ side. The other sides for the second Pentagon that they want the first compared to and the side needs to be solved for has points of W to X 6.4 and X to Y 4.8 and Y to Z is 8 and Z to V is 4.8. Please help me solve the VW. I need to get this answer ASAP tonight. I have been up most of the night trying to figure it out. Click here to see answer by Edwin McCravy(8909)

 Question 9186: A quadrilateral with sides of 12 (top), 15 (right side), 25 (bottom), and x (left side). The question is, what is the value of x? Inside the quadrilateral is a circle, with a piece of the cirle touching each side of the quadrilateral at uneven invtervals. No angles have been identified, and there are no obvious right angles. We played with the idea of trying to find a radius value within the circle, but that went nowhere. Personally, I think the circle is a red herring. Help! Click here to see answer by stanbon(57387)
