hello there, I'm having trouble finding the lengths of this triangle whose measurements are as follows:
this is the work that I had done:
***** 11^2 = 121, and 11/x
Multiply by 4x^2 to eliminate the fraction
Using graphical or numerical approximations,
x =~ 5.71342
That's the only real number solution.
You sure it's not (1/2)x + 11 for one leg?
written in standard form:
multiply everything by (11/4):
And now I'm stuck here, as you can see, there's no way I can factorize this, what have I done wrong?
Your help is very much appreciated.
