In parallelogram DEFG, DH = x + 1, HF = 3y, GH = 3x – 4, and HE = 5y + 1. Find the values of x and y.
The parallelogram has D at the top left E at the top right, G at the bottom left and and F at the bottom right with H in the middle.
Thank You ^0^

Since the diagonals bisect each other,
x+1 = 3y
3x4 = 5y+1
x  3y = 1
3x  5y = 5
3x  9y = 3
3x  5y = 5
4y = 8
y=2
x=5
