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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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! 🙂

  2. 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.
