already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

The length of a midsegment is half that of the parallel side of the triangle; assuming the midsegment is parallel to the [given] base, then its length is 27 ÷ 2 = 13.5 units.

What is the midsegment formula?

Median of a trapezoid is a line segment found on the midpoint ofthe legs of a trapezoid. It is also known as mid-line ormid-segment. Its basic formula is AB + CD divided by 2.

Factor 2x squared plus 5x plus 3?

2x 2 + 5x + 3Notice the first term, which can be rewritten as 2x times x. With this in mind, you can write the equation as... (2x + a)(x + b) ...where -a and -b are the answers. You know that a times b is equal to 3. With a little trial and error, you will find: 2x 2 + 5x + 3 = (2x + 3)(x + 1)

What is 5x plus 3 equals 48?

If you have 5x+3=48 takeaway 3 from both sides which leaves you with 5x=45 then divide both sides by 5 which is x=9

If a trapezoid has a base measure of 90 and a midsegment length of 85 what is the measure of the other base?

The Trapezoid midsegment conjecture- the midsegment of a trapezoid is parallel to the bases and is equal to the length to the average of the lengths of the bases. This is Some what Algebra....... what you do is take your length 90 and midsegment 85 into a prob like this (90+X)/2=85 times by two on b (MORE)

-x plus 5y equals 10 and -5x plus 2y equals 27?

This is a system of equations: -x + 5y = 10 -5x + 2y = 27 Multiply the first equation by 5. -5x + 25y = 50 Subtract the 2 equations: 23y = 23 Solve: y = 1 -x + 5(1) = 10 -x = 5 x = -5 Thus, the ordered pair is (-5, 1).

5x equals 2x plus 27 x equals?

5x=2x+27 subtract 2x from both sides get get X on only 1 side of the equation. 5x-2x=2x-2x + 27 leaves you with 3x = 27 divide both sides by 3 3x/3 = 27/3 leaves you with x = 9 answer X=9

2x plus 3-5x plus 10?

Depending on how the problem is written. 2x + 3 - 5x + 10 -3x + 13 ■ Or... 2x + 3 - (5x + 10) -3x - 7 ■ I think you want the second answer.

What is y equals 5x plus 3?

y=5x+3 is the equation of a line. The equation is in what is called slope intercept form. The line hits the y axis at the point (0,3). From there you can go up 5 and to the right 1 to find another point. Or you can go down 5 and to the left 1. No matter how you do it, you end up with a line with (MORE)

Is y equals -5x plus 3 a linear function?

Yes, y=-5x+3 is a linear function. We know that by two factors. First, if you plot the function, you find that it draws a straight line, hence the term linear. Second, if you inspect the non-constant terms, you find that all of the are in the first power, i.e. there are no "squareds", "cubes", squar (MORE)

-5x plus 7 equals 27?

-5x + 7 = 27 Add (5x - 27) to each side > -20 = 5x Divide each side by 5 > -4 = x

-5x - 23 plus 3x equals -27?

-5x -23 + 3x = -27 Combine like terms: -2x - 23 = -27 Add 23 to each side: -2x = -4 Divide each side by -2: x = -4/-2 x = 2

How do you solve 5x-3 plus x-9 equals 5x?

5x - 3 + x - 9 = 5x Bring like terms together of the left side: 5x + x - 3 - 9 = 5x Combine like terms: 6x - 12 = 5x Add 12 to both sides: 6x = 5x + 12 Subtract 5x from both sides: x = 12

What is 5x plus 3 if it equals 4x?

So, do you mean what is 5x+3=4x? If you do, I don't think that's algebraically possible, but I'm not sure. You have to have at least one more number without a variable on the 4x side for the equation to be solvable.

How do you solve a math problem about the midsegment of a trapezoid?

1). Collect the information the problem gives you. 2). Understand what the question is asking for. 3). Collect any formulas you know that connect the information it gives you with what it's asking for. 4). Find a way to use what you have and what you know to find what it's asking for.

Are there any solutions to these inequalities y-5x plus 2 and y-5x-3?

No, there are not, and here's why: to solve for this kind of problem, you will need to set both equations equal to each other. This will give you y - 5x + 2 = y - 5x - 3, You can subtract a y and a -5x from both sides, and this will leave you with 2 = -3, which is, of course, an impossibility. There (MORE)

What is the equation of the line that passes through the point -7-3 and is parallel to -5x plus 8y equals 27?

Put the equation of the given line into slope-intercept form. The slope is then the coefficient of x. -5x + 8y = 27. 8y = 5x + 27 y = 5 / 8 x + 3 3 / 8 .........so the slope of a parallel line is the same i.e. 5 / 8 Now use the standard slope-intercept equation , y = mx + c, where m is (MORE)

What is 5x plus 3 equals 2x plus 11 and how do you do it?

With equations like these, the most important thing you want to do is get x by itself. 5x + 3 = 2x + 11 First, you can subtract 3 from both sides of the equation. Since you subtract 3 from the 5x+3 side, that only leaves you with 5x because 3 - 3 = 0. While on the 2x+11 side, -3 means you combine (MORE)

What is the answer for 3 equals x plus 3 minus 5x?

3 = X + 3 - 5X combine variable terms 3 = - 4X + 3 subtract 3 from each side 0 = - 4X divide each side integer by - 4 0/- 4 = (- 4/- 4)X 0 = X ==check in original equation 3 = (0) + 3 - 5(0) 3 = 3 checks

What is the classification of triangles based on their measures?

All triangles have 3 interior angles that add up to 180 degrees and are classified according to the size of their angles as follows:- Right angle triangle: One 90 degree angle and 2 acute angles Isosceles triangle: Two equal angles and another angle Equilateral triangle: Three equal angles each m (MORE)

What is 8x equals 5x plus 3?

x would equal 1, 8x=5x+3, then you minus 5x from both sides, 3x= 5x +3, then you divide 3 from both sides, x=1.

What is 5x plus 3 equal 28?

It is an equation of: 5x+3 = 28 and its solution is x = 5 5 times x plus 3 equals 28. Subtract 3 from both sides of the equation. 5 times x equals 25. Divide both sides of the equation by 5. x equals 5. (stop)
