Question

If the length of hj were 4x, the length of hk were 3x, the length of jk were 2x and the perimeter of hjk were 63 what would the length of hj be?

1. The length of hj is 28 units

### How to determine the length of hj?

The given parameters are:
hj =4x
hk =3x
jk = 2x
Perimeter = 63
The perimeter of the triangle is calculated as:
P = hj + hk + jk
So, we have
4x + 3x + 2x = 63
Evaluate the like terms
9x = 63
Divide by 9
x = 7
Substitute x = 7 in hj =4x
hj =4 * 7
Evaluate
hj = 28
Hence, the length of hj is 28 units
