@Nnesha do you know how ?

11 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.

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 ?

11 months ago
Sarah10:

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

Nnesha:

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

Sarah10:

so it will be (?,y) right?

Sarah10:

i mean

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 ?

11 months ago
Sarah10:

is it 0,0

Nnesha:

ohh there you go yes that's right!

Sarah10:

so answer is a

11 months ago
Nnesha:

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

11 months ago
Nnesha:

it is in the question :)

11 months ago
Sarah10:

3?

11 months ago
Nnesha:

`3 times its shorter side`

11 months ago
Nnesha:

shorter side =a so what will be the expression ?

11 months ago
Sarah10:

it says three times the shorter side so

11 months ago
Sarah10:

3a?

Sarah10:

im so confused lol

Nnesha:

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