Q:
# In segment AC, the midpoint is B. if segments AC = 5x-9 and AB= 2x what is the measure of AC? Can you show their work on paper or something so i can understand more?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The answer to your question is: AC = 36Step-by-step explanation:DataSegment AC with midpoint = BAC = 5x - 9AB = 2xAC = ?Process total length = AC but B is the midpoint so AB + AB = CA 2AB = CA Substitution 2(2x) = 5x - 9 4x = 5x - 9 Solve for x 4x - 5x = -9 -1x = -9 x = -9/-1 x = 9Finally, AC = 5x - 9 = 5(9) - 9 = 45 - 9 = 36
