Can't tell whether A is in between B and E or not.
But, you know that BEC=BED
That should help you pin down AEC.
If A is between B and C
BEA+AEC=BEC
11x12 + AEC = 4x+1
AEC = 137x
or, if B is between A and C,
AECAEB=BEC
AEC11x+12 = 4x+1
AEC = 15x13
Of course, A could be a lot of other places, too.posted by Steve
