Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I thought that i would subtract 125 and 52 to get the answer.. but i wasnt so sure that wass right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1:))!! The map shows the route for a race. You are at A, which is 6000 feet from the first checkpoint B. The second checkpoint C is located at the midpoint between B and the end of the race D. The total race is 3 miles. How far apart are the 2 checkpoints?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The total length of AD is 3 miles, so 1.13636 + x + x = 3 solve that for x to find the answer

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alternatively, you can convert 3 miles to feet to get 3 miles = 15,840 feet

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then solve 6000 + x + x = 15840 for x to get the answer in feet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do I combine both x's?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes x+x becomes 2x

LilVeroDez13

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then you have 6,000 + 2x = 15,840.. u 6000 to both sides and get 2x = 9840.. now divide that by 2 and X = 4920

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1perfect, the distance is 4920 feet

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to convert that to miles (optional in my opinion, but you never know), divide that by 5280

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Divide 4920 and 5280?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, if you want to convert to miles, but I like the answer in feet (it's a much cleaner number)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thanks!!! theres just alot of problems I dont get.. and hate to ask :) But Im glad you like helping.. makes me feel better. Felt like I was askin for to much. Ray GL bisects angle FGM. Suppose angle FGL measures (6x +4)º while angle LGM measures (8x  4)º. What is the measure of angle FGM?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.16x + 4 = 8x  4 14x + 4 = 4 Im stuck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no you just add the two expressions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(6x+4)+(8x4) 6x+4+8x4 (6x+8x)+(44) 14x + 0 14x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's it, FGM is 14x degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh wait, i just remembered that GL bisects FGM

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you're right (my bad) 6x + 4 = 8x  4 6x + 44 = 8x  4 4 6x = 8x  8 6x8x = 8x  88x 2x = 8 2x/(2) = 8/(2) x = 4

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so FGM = 14x FGM = 14*4 FGM = 56 So angle FGM is 56 degrees
