Thank you (:

  • Geometry kite solving question -

    Assuming symmetry for a kite,

    y-4 = 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.
