Tutorial #48
Similar Triangle Theorem 8.4
Podcast:
Example problems:
Find BE
Use the rule related to parallel lines, cross multiply and solve.
36 = 8x
4.5 = x
Find (X)
For this problem you must use the full sides of triangles as a solution. The parallel rule does not work here. The problem asks you to find x. Here is the solution:
x = 5
