PLEASE HELP

In Triangle WXY, angle X is equal to angle Y, WX is equal to 9x-11, XY is equal 4 points

to 4x+1, and WY is equal to 7x-3, find x and the measure of each side

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    • x = 4
    • WX = WY = 25
    • XY = 17

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The triangle is isosceles with side WX equal to side WY:

      WX = WY

      9x -11 = 7x -3

      2x = 8 . . . . . add 11-7x

      x = 4

    Then the side measures are ...

      WX = WY = 7(4) -3 = 28 -3 = 25

      XY = 4(4) +1 = 16 +1 = 17
