    8+x=L L+x=26 substitute (8+x)+x=26 x is the same for both expressions because the points are equally spaced solve for x, then solve for L

    the points are evenly spaced, so L is the same distance away from both points B and E

    so we can say (B+E)/2 = L or basically take the value of B, add it to E, then divide by 2 to get L
