Find the measure of each line segment whose algabraic expressions is given when x= 5 and y=4.
Does that mean I have to label the sides, like if there's an "x" on one side of a rectangle I should substitute a 5? I just need to check on this as there are quite a few questions dealing with this direction.
If I could just get that cleared up that would be so nice.

    I have to go offline now, but I just want to tell you thank you SO much for all of your help. I really appreciate it. I understand it so much more. I will probably come back on Jiskha tomorrow to finish up. Thanks again!=)
