I'm in school right now, in my computer class, and wanted to ask for help with a problem in my Geometry homework; I've got all of it done except this problem. The diagram has a line with G on the end, E in the middle (although according to another problem, I'm pretty sure it isn' the exact midpoint) and H on the end. Me and 4 other people have all concluded it's impossible, but I just wanted to run it by UG; you have to solve for Y, and are given these equations:

GE = 3y

GH = 7y-4

EH = 24

Anyone else finding a possible solution? Just wanted to double check.

GE = 3y

GH = 7y-4

EH = 24

The answer is E=mc^vagina

#3

7y-4 = 3y+24

7y = 3y+28

~ 4y = 28

y = 7

7y = 3y+28

~ 4y = 28

y = 7

#4

7y-4 = 3y+24

7y = 3y+28

~ 4y = 28

y = 7

TS, How was that hard?

I think he's just lazy.

Yeah we learned that stuff in 6th grade....

Samezies.

#8

7y-4 = 3y+24

7y = 3y+28

~ 4y = 28

y = 7

What the hell? I'm sorry, one of the people I was working with threw me off. I came up with that answer, but he plugged it into the equation and said it was wrong; he must have went wrong at some point. Now that I plug it in myself, you're right. I'm going to go tell him (he's in this class with me). Thanks.

i would have just left it if it was the only question left and i couldn't get it....

I've left school - no one can

*make*me do an equation ever again!

But then I still choose to do them

It's kind of sad how far our schools are behind yours; this is a sophmore class (meaning 10th grade, when you're 15-16, in case anyone has a different system), which I'm taking as a Freshman, yet all of you are way beyond this.

Where do you go to school? Geometry is a Freshman class at my school, we go from Geometry all the way to calculus.

Well, I just moved here, but even at my old school, Algebra was the Freshman class.Where do you go to school? Geometry is a Freshman class at my school, we go from Geometry all the way to calculus.
