The squares ABCD and AEFG share a common vertex at A. If CF measures 6, calculate BE.

Two squares intertwine,

Vertex A unites their forms,

Geometry's quest.

Key Term | Description |
---|---|

Overlapping Squares | Two squares that share a common vertex or side, creating a geometric intersection. |

Vertex | A point where two or more lines or edges meet. In this problem, vertex A is common to both squares. |

ABCD | One of the squares in the problem with vertices labeled A, B, C, and D. |

AEFG | The other square in the problem with vertices labeled A, E, F, and G. |

CF | The length of the side connecting vertices C and F, given as 6 units in this problem. |

BE | The length of the side connecting vertices B and E, which needs to be calculated. |
