Find the values of m and n. On the right triangle, the base is n and the side is m. The slope however is n+1. The rectangles base is n and the side is m.Answer by edjones(7569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2n+2m=34 . n+m+n+1=30 2n+m=29 m=29-2n 2n+2(29-2n)=34 substitute 29-2n for m. 2n+58-4n=34 -2n=-24 n=12 m=5 .
