I assume you have a set of four squares created by 12 matches so that you actually have one large square of eight matches and 4 matches inside. If this is so, simply take one match from one corner and move it directly away from the square so it still touches the match closest to it (pictures to follow). Then take the two outer matches from the square diagonally from this one and arrange them to fill in the two missing sides.

### In a 4'x 4' square, cut into 2 triangles, what would be the 3rd side of each triangle?

Hi Carolyn
This is easy peasy.
A squared plus B squared = C squared
So, 4 squared (16) + 4 squared (16)= C squared
C= square root of 32 or 5.66

Link below provides a calculator so you can do it yourself.

### Were is the colling fan relay located? i only have 4 relays on the passenger side by the fire wall i bought a new one and checked all 4 for a match and 2 match which one is it?

It is one of the square relays on the firewall on the passenger side. Should be 3 or 4 relays depending on options. One is AC clutch relay, one is fan relay, one is fuel pump relay. Position varies by year and option so you need to check by wire color. Also If you flip Over the cover there should be a fuse block diagram that are labeled. I hope this helps man~ Dont forget to rate me~

### Find missing number in this progression: 15 26 34 51 ? 84 96 125 hh22@cox.net

The missing number is 61.
Look at perfect squares: (1,4,9),16, 25, 36, 49,64, 81,100,121
Then look at the given progression 15, 26, 34, 51, x, 84, 96,125
Take differences from the closest -1,+1, -2, +2, -3, +3, -4, +4

(15 is 1 less than 16 = 4 squared,
26 is 1 more than 25 = 5 squared,
34 is 2 less than 36 = 6 squared,
51 is 2 more than 49 = 7 squared,
61 is 3 less than 64 = 8 squared,
84 is 3 more than 81 = 9 squared,
96 is 4 less than 100 = 10 squared,
125 is 4 more than 121 = 11 squared)

### I put in a 90,000 btu furnace with a 4 ton blower and a 2 ton air conditioner. how can i adjust the blower speed to match the 2 ton usage

I would suggest getting a 4 ton AC. Equipment that is not matched properly usually does not function properly. What is the size of the space you are trying to cool....in square feet? One other possibility would be to try to rewire it. If it is a multispeed motor you could try to wire it to run on low speed during the AC cycle....but that's a long shot.
