What is the value of x? Enter your answer in the box. x = . Triangle G E H with segment E D such that D is on segment G H, between G and H. Angle G E D is congruent to angle D E H. E G equals 99.2 feet, G D equals 62 feet, D H equals left parenthesis x plus 2 right parenthesis feet, and E H equals 112 feet.

Accepted Solution

Corresponding sides on either side of ED are proprotional, so
.. (x+2)/112 = 62/99.2
.. x +2 = 112*62/99.2 = 70

x = 68 . . . . feet
