 Question 27632: If NM=8x-14 and JK=x^2+1 Find JK, I know that since the shape is a rectangle you'd start out with 8x-14=x^2+1 but how do I sort out the x^2?Answer by venugopalramana(3286)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If NM=8x-14 and JK=x^2+1..WHAT ARE THESE EXPRESSIONS GIVEN FOR JK AND MN ? ARE THEY EQNS.OF JK AND MN?IF SO JK IS NOT A STRAIGHT LINE. Find JK,..WHAT IS MEANT BY THIS ?.JK IS ALREADY GIVEN ABOVE! I know that since the shape is a rectangle..HOW SINCE JK IS NOT A STRAIGHT LINE JKMN CANNOT BE A RECTANGLE you'd start out with 8x-14=x^2+1 but how do I sort out the x^2? SO PLEASE DESCRIBE PROPERLY THE PROBLEM AND WHAT IS TO BE FOUND?GIVE A SKETCH OTHERWISE...
