I thought that i would subtract 125 and 52 to get the answer.. but i wasnt so sure that wass right.

:))!! 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?

6000 feet = 1.13636 miles (roughly)

The total length of AD is 3 miles, so 1.13636 + x + x = 3 solve that for x to find the answer
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
alternatively, you can convert 3 miles to feet to get 3 miles = 15,840 feet
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then solve 6000 + x + x = 15840 for x to get the answer in feet

Do I combine both x's?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes x+x becomes 2x
 one year ago

LilVeroDez13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then 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_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
perfect, the distance is 4920 feet
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
to convert that to miles (optional in my opinion, but you never know), divide that by 5280
 one year ago

LilVeroDez13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Divide 4920 and 5280?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, if you want to convert to miles, but I like the answer in feet (it's a much cleaner number)

no worries, i like helping, what's your question?

Thanks!!! 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?

I add 6x +4 and 8x  4?
 one year ago

LilVeroDez13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
6x + 4 = 8x  4 14x + 4 = 4 Im stuck
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no you just add the two expressions
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
(6x+4)+(8x4) 6x+4+8x4 (6x+8x)+(44) 14x + 0 14x

that's it, FGM is 14x degrees
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh wait, i just remembered that GL bisects FGM
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you'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
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so FGM = 14x FGM = 14*4 FGM = 56 So angle FGM is 56 degrees
