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?????

  15. 2021 has gotten better just a little bit, please dont get mad at me I am not being rude guys :( / In 2020 We were not allowed to do much of anything like I could not go outside and have fun, which I didn't really want to do anyways but other people did, I was stuck with a lot of brothers and it was not fun, even though with my school going online I was not getting bullied as much it still didn't make anything better, We went back to normal school and all I did was get made fun of, my "basketball" shoes, my messed up hair cut, my clothes, my voice, everything, I wore everything that the cool kids wore and It wasn't my fault that my barber messed up my haircut, I was never mean to anyone and I was thinking of ending everything, it was all the sporty kids who made fun of me and the only reason I did not do sports was because I worry a lot and I have bad anxiety, I do not know why I keep talking about this but is anyone else's school bullying this bad? I am now homeschooled and I am doing great, but I do not want to become anti-social, not like I had many friends anyways :(
