Find the indicated values. Please correct me if I'm wrong!

1. B is between A and C. AB=2x+1, BC=3x-4, and AC=62. Find the value of 'x' and determine if B is a bisector.

X=13
Is it a bisector? Yes

2. M is between L and N. LM=7x-1, MN=2x+4, and LN=12. Find the value of 'x' and determine if M is a bisector.

X=1
Is it a bisector? No, it's a midpoint

1. 1. yes
2. x = 1 is correct
so LM = 6 and MN = 6
which makes M the bisector.
You are also right to call M the midpoint, but it asked if M is a bisector.
Isn't that basically the same thing? Since "bisect" means cutting into two equal parts.
