m is the midpoint of segment jk. jm=x/8 and jk=3x/4 subtracted by 6. find mk

  • ap geometry -

    if m is the midpoint, jm = mk, so

    x/8 = 3x/4 - 6
    x = 48/5

    jm = mk = 6/5

  • ap geometry -

    JM=MK=JK/2
    x/8 = (3x/4-6)/2
    x/8 = (3X/4-24/4)/2
    x/8 = 3x/8 - 24/8
    x = 3x - 24
    x-3x = -24
    -2x = -24
    x = 12
    12/8 = 1.5 = JM = MK
