. If EF = 5x + 15, FG = 53, and EG = 143, find the value of x. The drawing is not to scale. http://tinypic.com/r/fbczn/6

    If you had to run the distance of EG you first would have to run for E to F and then from F to G to get there, right. So you just ran EF + FG = EG

    So we can use this to get the formula (5x + 15) + 53 = 143
