Posted by on .

B is the midpoint of segment AC and D is the midpoint of segment CE. Solve for x, given BD=3x+5 and AE=4x+20.

Sorry I couldn't get the link for the picture but, the diagram is a picture of a triangle with a C at the top, and A and E on
the bottom angles, with segment BD going through the middle of the triangle.

Thank You ^0^

    triangle BCD is similar to triangle ACE (side, angle C, side)
    AC = 2 BC
    therefore AE = 2 BD
    therefore
    4x+20 = 2 (3x+5) solve that

    BD= 1/2 AE.
    So the real equation is 6x+10=4x+20
    isolate the variable and you will get your answer.
    the answer is x=5
