Yay! This gives us our answer 🙂 Another random rule in Geometry accomplished.

Still got questions? That’s cool, take a deep breath and ask me in the comments section.

To be honest, I never learned this in my high school (in Ontario, Canada). We had up to grade 13 in high school and Geometry before I entered high school. At my time they took out grade 13 and Geometry.

So this is why this is new to me. I think Geometry should make a comeback to increase demand for good architects to make fancy looking buildings/houses/theme parks, etc.

Now I know this. Thank you.

I took geometry in highschool but don’t even remember this. There are so many things to remember in this subject and if you don’t use it on a daily basis it’s so easy to forget. Glad you enjoyed this post! 🙂

I didn’t know the result you used. Here is how I thought about it:

Say EF is longer than DC by some amount L.

Notice that AB is longer than EF by the same amount L.

(You can see this by drawing triangles – draw lines straight down from C,D,E and F.)

This gives us:

2x+2=x+3+L,

5x-9=2x+2+L.

Taking the first equation from the second gives:

3x-11=x-1.

Now we can solve for x.

I never would have thought of that…that’s awesome! It makes a lot more sense than a random rule too. 🙂
