This is a 9th grade geometry question. I'm confused in how to find y. As soon as I know the y value,  I should be able to figure  out the rest. Thank you!

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In this case EB = ED.

therefore 4y-12 =y+17

4y-y=17+12

3y=29

y=9.667.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Thank you so much for your reply! It makes so much more sense now. :)

That means that ED and EB both equal 26.67 and DB equals 53.3?

You dint give the full information about ED and EB , but as long as you have the "y" you can now easily work out . You welcome .

All the best
