Example: In a given ABC, DEBC and AD/DB = 5/7. If AC = 6.5 cm., find AE.
Solution: in ABC ,you have DE BC


 
5(6.5 - AE)= 7AE 
32.5 - 5AE = 7AE 
12AE = 32.5
AE = 2.70 cm.
 
   
As many of you know, Winpossible's online courses use a unique teaching method where an instructor explains the concepts in any given area to you in his/her own voice and handwriting, just like you see your teacher explain things to you on a blackboard in your classroom. All our courses include teacher's instruction, practice questions as well as end-of-lesson quizzes for practice. You can enroll in any of our online courses by clicking here.

The format of Winpossible's online courses is also very suitable for teachers who are using an interactive whiteboard such as Smartboard on Promethean in their classrooms, because the course lessons can be easily displayed on such interactive whiteboards. Volume pricing is available for schools interested in our online courses. For more information, please contact us at educators@winpossible.com.
