@Nnesha do you know how ?

8 months ago
Nnesha:

well the y-coordinate is given and the x-coordinates stated in the problem if you move a dot on the x-axis the y-coordinate will stays the same.

Sarah10:

yea that one

Sarah10:

do u know how ?

8 months ago
Nnesha:

https://prnt.sc/gzkfks so what will be the y-coordinate ?

8 months ago
Sarah10:

i honestly have no clue

8 months ago
Sarah10:

0,a?

Nnesha:

|dw:1508451843943:dw| for example ^^in that drawing i moved a dot from one place to another to the right the y value is still 3 for all dots the x-coordinate is changing in an order pair (x,y) the first number represent the x and 2nd one represent the y-coordinate

Nnesha:

if you move that same dot up or down then the x values will stays the same while y-coordinate values will be changing.

Sarah10:

so the answer will be( 0,?)

Nnesha:

https://prnt.sc/gzkhox so if you move the dot from the y-axis to the middle which coordinate should be the same ?

8 months ago
Sarah10:

oh if you move it right or left y will be changing

8 months ago
Nnesha:

$\huge\rm (\color{Red}{x},\color{blue}{y})$ remember if you move the dot left or right the y should stays the same/

8 months ago
Sarah10:

so it will be (?,y) right?

8 months ago
Sarah10:

i mean

8 months ago
Sarah10:

(?,a)

8 months ago
Sarah10:

8 months ago
Sarah10:

$$\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @Sarah10 (?,a) $$\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}$$ yes right!

Nnesha:

x is the longer side in order to find the x-coordinate first you have to find the length of the shorter side https://prnt.sc/gzkj2l

Sarah10:

how will i find it ?

8 months ago
Sarah10:

is it 0,0

8 months ago
Nnesha:

Nnesha:

you don't really have to use the formula how long is that line ishttps://prnt.sc/gzkk64 ?

8 months ago
Sarah10:

like that ?

8 months ago
Nnesha:

ohh there you go yes that's right!

8 months ago
Sarah10:

8 months ago
Nnesha:

No. that's the length of shorter side so the longer side will be what ?

8 months ago
Nnesha:

it is in the question :)

8 months ago
Sarah10:

3?

8 months ago
Nnesha:

3 times its shorter side

8 months ago
Nnesha:

shorter side =a so what will be the expression ?

8 months ago
Sarah10:

it says three times the shorter side so

8 months ago
Sarah10:

3a?

8 months ago
Sarah10:

im so confused lol

Nnesha:

$$\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @Sarah10 3a? $$\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}$$ yes right
