Q:

PLEASE HELP solve for x

Accepted Solution

A:
The value of x is 5. The correct option is the second option- Β 5 Proportionality theoremFrom the question, we are to determine the value of x By the proportionality theorem, we have thatIf three or more parallel lines intersect two transversals, then they cut off the transversals proportionally.Considering the diagram, we can write that[tex]\frac{12}{28 }= \frac{35-4x}{35}[/tex]
Then, we get 12 Γ— 35 = 28(35-4x)420 = 980 -112x 112x = 980 - 420 112x = 560 x = 560/ 112x = 5Hence, the value of x is 5. The correct option is the second option- Β 5 Learn more on Proportionality theorem here: #SPJ1
