Try it out!
The picture above is using a portion of a centimeter ruler. What is the length of segment AB? Describe how you know.
The information above can be used to write this equation:
AB + BC = AC.
AB + BC = AC.Use the numbers you found to show that the equation is true.
Write at least 2 more equations using the lengths AB, BC, CD, BD, etc.
For the same drawing as number 6, if EF = x, FH = 2x + 10, and EH = 35, what is the value of x? What is the length of FH? Explain (in words, or show your calculations)
