# Find WX. Assume that segments which appear to be tangent are tangent.

1 answer:

**Answer:**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Tangent from the point outside the circle are equal

WX = XY

7x - 29 = 2x + 16 {**Add 29 to both sides**}

7x = 2x + 16 +29

7x = 2x + 45 {**Subtract 2x from both sides**}

7x - 2x = 45

5x = 45 {**Divide both sides by 5**}

x = 45/5

x = 9

WX = 7x - 29

= 7*9 - 29

= 63 - 29

**WX = 34**

Yes the answer is c because I have gotten this question before

Lets assume the sides of the isosceles triangle are:

Side A: x

Side B: x

Base: x/2

x+x+x/2= 46.8cm

2x+x/2=46.8cm

4x+x=93.6

5x=93.6

x= 18.72

Side A: 18.72cm

Side B: 18.72cm

Base: 9.36cm

The base of the largest triangular flag Sara can make is 9.36cm.

2x+x/2= 46.8cm

**Answer: 20inch**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Using the Pythagoras theorem:-

25^2 = 15^2 + x^2 where x = the width of the screen.

625 = 225 + x^2

x = √(625 - 225) = √400

= = 20 ins

**Answer:**

x=8

**Step-by-step explanation:**

3(x+4)=36

Divide each side by 3

3/3 (x+4)=36/3

x+4 = 12

Subtract 4 from each side

x+4-4 = 12-4

x = 8
