  • Geometry kite solving question -

    Assuming symmetry for a kite,

    y-4 = x+5
    2x+5 = x+12

    from the second equation,

    plugging that into the first equation,

    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.
