AC = BC  because tangent lines from outside point are always congruent

then,

3x + 2 = x + 12

2x = 10

x = 5

i meant to put 6

Oh, ok. I'll have a look at that one.

Set up system of equations

x + y = 6 and

3x - y = 10 then y = 3x - 10, substitute into first equation

x + (3x - 10) = 6

4x - 10 = 6

4x = 16

x = 4

y = 6 - 4

y = 2

can you help me with number 7 and 9 

May 8th, 2015

Ok, hold on.

7)  Again, set up system of equations

2x = y + 12  then y = 2x - 12

3x = y + 19  then y = 3x - 19

Set them equal to each other

2x - 12 = 3x - 19

x = 7

y = 2(7) - 12

y = 2

9)  x = 1/2(140 + 90)

x = 1/2(230)

x = 115
