If R is the midpoint of AB and S is the midpoint of BC and AS:SC=3:2, determine the length of BS if AC=50.

  • geometry - ,

    I will assume that AC is the longest and B is between A and C
    let AR = RB = x
    let BS = SC = y

    given: (2x+y)/y = 3/2
    3y = 4x+2y
    y = 4x

    also : 2x + 2y = 50
    x + y = 25
    x + 4x = 25
    x = 5

    then BS = y = 4x = 20
