Re: Problem#3 Grade 11 GeometryHi lakeheadca; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20100625 15:20:21

Re: Problem#3 Grade 11 GeometryThat is correct,x = 3.6. I don't understand where you do not understand. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Problem#3 Grade 11 GeometryI think first time you guys came across someone who is that bad in Math Last edited by lakeheadca (20100630 01:42:35) #9 20100630 01:58:24
Re: Problem#3 Grade 11 GeometryYea.. The triangles are "similar" and not "congruent". If two or more thoughts intersect with each other, then there has to be a point. #10 20100630 07:44:15
Re: Problem#3 Grade 11 Geometry
Calm down, I am worse. If I appear better, it is only because I have been doing it longer.
No, If AB = 10 and AD = x then DB = 10  x In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11 20100701 12:15:13
Re: Problem#3 Grade 11 GeometryArchimedes run rings around your head? Well you've come to the right place. This is where you'll find almost everything you'll ever need to know about Geometry. We have a special page on constructions and plenty of sample problems to help you understand the concepts. Have a blast and don't forget to check out our Glossary  it's huge! #12 20100701 13:31:01
Re: Problem#3 Grade 11 GeometryThank you Bobby. I got it. You made the problem easy. #13 20100701 17:04:15
