User: Given rectangle WXYZ. If WX = 10y + 4 and YZ = 13y - 8, find the value of y.

Weegy: First draw a picture of the rectangle. When you label it correctly, you will notice that sides WX and YZ are opposite to each other, and because they are opposite sides of a rectangle this means they are congruent in length. [ Therefore, set the two equations equal to each other and solve for y: WX = YZ 10y + 4 = 13y - 8 (add 8 to both sides) 10y + 12 = 13y (subtract 10y from both sides) 12 = 3y (divide both sides by 3) 4 = y Therefore, the value of y is 4. Check: 10y + 4 = 13y - 8 10(4) + 4 = 13(4) - 8 40 + 4 = 52 - 8 44 = 44 (this is true, therefore y = 4 is correct) http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20080516130805AASTi7J ]

User: The lateral area of a rectangular prism with height of 5 feet is 175 feet squared. What is the perimeter of the base?

Weegy: I will answer #3 to get you started. #3. The slant height, the height and 1/2 of a base edge form a right triangle. You can use the pythagorean theorem. [ The slant height would be the hypotenuse. x= height 5 = half base edge 13 = slant height x^2 + 5^2 = 13^2 x^2 + 25 = 169 x^2 = 144 x = 12cm http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20100731191858AAXs0ZP ]
