Given triangleABC is congruent to triangleXYZ, if AB=3X-1, BC=5X+2, XY=7, and YZ=14, find X.

  • Geometry -

    I assumed you were following the convention that the order of letters in triangle ABC would correspond with triangle XYZ
    that is, AB = XY, AC = XZ etc
    so 3x-1 = 7
    x = 8/3, but
    5x+2 = 14 gives us x = 12/5

    contradiction!
    Please correct your typing.
