Can you find the length and width of the inner rectangle? can you find the area of the original rectangle? can you find the area of the inner rectangle? wouldn't original rectangle - inner rectange give you the area of the walkway?

side of triangle -- x perimeter of triangle = 3x side of square = x+4 perimeter of square = 4(x+4) = 4x + 16 4x+16 - 3x = 28 x = 12 State conclusions

We don't do assignments here. You will have better luck dealing with one question at a time, and letting us know where your problems lie.

You clearly did not even look at my previous post in reply to a similar question.

**math**

first you need the slope m m = (4-2)/(5-8) = -2/3 so y = (-2/3)x + b but (5,4) lies on it, (we could use (8,2) ) 4 = (-2/3)(5) + b 4 = -10/3 + b b = 22/3 y = (-2/3)x + 22/3 I usually check my equation by using the point NOT used to find the equation. e.g. for (8,2) LS = 2 RS...

Don't really know what you are saying, but ... If there is no y-intercept, then you must have a vertical line, and the equation would not take the form y = mx + b To have a vertical line, the m , or the slope would be undefined, which is not a numerical value If b = 0, ...

**Geometry**

Depends which are the two equal sides case1: 5x - 12 = 3x 2x = 12 x = 6 then the sides are 18, 18 and 26 case2: 3x = x+20 2x = 20 x = 10 then the sides are 30, 30 and 38 case3: 5x-12 = x+20 4x = 32 x = 8 then the sides are 24, 28 and 28

see my previous comment about trig names RS = csc^2 Ø tan^2 Ø - 1 = 1/sin^2 Ø(sin^2 Ø/cos^2 Ø) - 1 = 1/cos^2 Ø - cos^2 Ø/cos^2 Ø = (1 - cos^2)/cos^2 Ø = sin^2 Ø/cos^2 Ø = tan^2 Ø = LS
