What is the value of x? Justify each step.
AC=32
2x 6x+8 .__________________._________________.
A B C
Drawing not to scale

AB + BC = AC a.segment addition postulate
2x + 6x + 8 =32 b.substitution
8x + 8 = 32 c.simplification
8x = 24 d.addition property of equality
x = 3 e.multiplication property of equality

Is my proof reasoning correct?????

  1. a. segment addition postulate
    b. substitution
    c. simplify
    d. subtraction property of equality(subtracting 8 from both sides)
    e. division property of equality(divide 8 by both sides)
