[1.04] If B is between A and C, AB=2x-1, BC=3x+5 and AC=24, what is the value of x?

Segment A C contains point B.

***A=======B======*C **

If AC = 24; AB = 2x-1 and BC = 3x+5, then AB + BC = AC. Solve for X. Post your work if you get stuck.

(2x -1) + (3x +5) = 24

5x +4 = 24

5x = 20

x = ?

thank you
