Finding the horizontal distance

Postby hakandragon » Tue Jul 07, 2009 3:39 am

Hey everyone, I hope this is in the right spot...For some odd reason this was never covered in my book so I'm not quite sure what to do with it. (that happens quite a lot actually... :shock: )

Given the diagram below, find the horizontal distance AB.


Thanks so much in advance for any advice.

Where will the horizontal line y = 2 intersect the line y = (2/3)x - 2?

What is the distance between this point and the point at A? :wink:
