Cerentie, you have lodge a complaint that people are being rude to you about the number of questions that you have asked.

Perhaps you are unaware of just how many questions you ARE posting.

27 of the last 100 questions are yours!!

How can you possibly be learning from all of these?

We are not here to do your homework for you.

We are not even here to check every one of your answers.

The answerers here want to help people to learn. They are a wonderfully generous and knowledgeable collection of people.

When I see people aske this many question I usually skip over them and help the people who are less demanding.

I know you are not the only offender. There are a couple of others as well, particularly **Samjones** and **Angleray**

Actually it is funny because I just realised that the person who you thought was being rude to you was not being rude at all!

They were just amused by your spelling mistake LOL. Their quip was funny :)

Remember that the bisected apex angle sets up the following relationship

x / 4 = 2.25 / 3 cross-multiply

3x = 4 * 2.25

3x = 9 divide both sides by 3

x = 3

The second one is similar

x + 8 2x - 5

____ = _____ cross-multiply

10 14

14 ( x + 8) = 10 (2x - 5) simplify

14x + 112 = 20x - 50 add/subtract 50, 14x to/from both sides

6x = 162 divide both sides by 6

x = 27
