Segment A C contains point B.

**Jai**, Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 11:29amNote that point B is in segment AC, therefore we can say that the sum of lengths of AB and BC is equal to AC, or

AB + BC = AC

Substituting,

(2x - 1) + (3x + 5) = 24

5x + 4 = 24

5x = 20

x = 4

Thus,

AB: 2(4) - 1 = 7 units

Hope this helps~ :3
