hi, im soooo confused
If the sides of the pentagon are x, x, x+1, 2x+1, 5x-7 and P=45, find the SECOND LARGEST side.
x=5
second largest side is x+1, no? 5+1=6
answer is 11. Why do they consider 2x+1 2nd largest side???
See what i mean? i got confused with the word "second largest" for some reason i took it as "count from smallest to largest" lol i guess that would be second smallest.. Stupid mistakes like this get me.. (English is 2nd language since age 12 but i know that's not an excuse..)x=5
x=5
x+1=6
2x+1=11
5x-7=18
The second largest is 2x+1 (18)......you can't be messing up like this my buddy!
nope- russianI hear you lol Eng is my second too, you're spanish I assume?
