## Lime 3 years ago Geometry: Is my answer correct?

1. Lime

2. Lime

5x = 3x + 32 2x - 32 = 0 x = 16

3. juantweaver

answer is wrong since ST=5x =5*16

4. Mikael

Well u solved correct eqtn

5. hartnn

x=16 is correct

6. hartnn

but ST is not x,ST is 5x ! 5x=5*16=??

7. Lime

5(16) = 3(16) + 32?

8. Mikael

Yes but you have chosen wrong number in the final mult-choice

9. juantweaver

ST=5*x=5*16 ST=TU SU=2*ST

10. Mikael

How much is 5*16 ?

11. Lime

80

12. Mikael

Now - you r told that this is HALF the length ...

13. Mikael

What is the NAME of the full length ... ?

14. Mikael

c'mn...

15. Lime

I understand that 80 + 80 = 160.

16. Mikael

Again what is the denotation of the FULL interval ?

17. Mikael

It is called SU

18. Mikael

so SU = 160

19. Lime

Yes..

20. Mikael

choose now the answer that will have this in it and the other fact that u fnd

21. Lime

TU = 80, then ST = 80? 80 + 16 = only 96?

22. Mikael

OMG - why, why , why - READ THE FIRST DATA : T is the midpoint

23. Mikael

Lime ?...

24. Lime

T is the midpoint of SU. T is the midpoint of 160.

25. Mikael

So what is the length of the left HALF (and its name is ST...) ?

26. Mikael

So ur answer must be Line-2 from the top

27. Mikael

BTW medal....

28. Lime

ST is 80. I said that. Because 80 + 16 only equals 96 which is not enough. 80 + 80 = 160.

29. Mikael

why you push into it 16 for ?!!

30. Mikael

Left half 80, Right half 80 , total length 160

31. Lime

Exactly. I was explaining why C was NOT the answer after I had figured it out.

32. Mikael

Aand what IS the answer ?

33. Lime

B. 80 + 80 = 160. Both halves equal the whole.

34. Lime

I always manage to excommunicate and get into debates with my tutors. Anyhow, thanks guys. :)
