Hello, Ileana!

Find the valuess of the variables and the length of the sides.

It shows an isosceles trapezoid ABCD

and it has 2x-2, x+1, 2x-7, x-1

What should i do first...

First, describe the isosceles trapezoid for us.

Which two sides are parallel? .Which two sides are equal?

Second, tell us which side is "2x - 2". . AB? .BC? .CD? .DA?

If the four sides are given in order, the problem is impossible.

. . If would mean that: .2x - 2 .= .2x - 7 . or . x + 1 .= .x - 1 . ??
