Find the variables and lengths of the sides of this kite.
{top left is y4, top right is x+5, bottom left is 2x+5, and bottom right is x+12}
Thank you (:

Assuming symmetry for a kite,
y4 = x+5
2x+5 = x+12
from the second equation,
x=7
plugging that into the first equation,
y=16
so, the short sides are 12, the long sides are 19
Check for typos. This is the second problem you've posted that doesn't follow the usual pattern of having n equations in n variables.
