Triangles ABF and EDG are congruent. Triangles ABF and GCF are equilateral. AG = 24 and CG = 1/5 AB. What is the total distance from A to B to C to D to E??

1. If you get this question without a figure, it is not a surprise that you do not understand this.
We have three triangles
1. ABF
2. EDG
3. CFG

We conclude:
1. ABF is not linked to EDG directly by any point.
2. ABF is linked to CFG by the point F only.
3. EDG is linked to CFG by the point G only.
4. EDG is equilateral and congruent to ABF.
5. CFG is equilateral and the side is 1/5 of that of the other two.
6. AG is 24.

I suppose you have extracted information from a figure, but the information is probably incomplete.

Try to upload it to an image site and provide the link if you'd like help on the problem.
