[1.04] If B is between A and C, AB=2x-1, BC=3x+5 and AC=24, what is the value of x?
Segment A C contains point B.

*A=======B======*C

If AC = 24; AB = 2x-1 and BC = 3x+5, then AB + BC = AC. Solve for X. Post your work if you get stuck.

(2x -1) + (3x +5) = 24
5x +4 = 24
5x = 20
x = ?

thank you

Find the distance between the points (-1,4) and (-2,-9).

• geometery -

the answer is 4
because
you divide 5x=20 to 5
this will cancel 5 and give you
x=4
