Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, i'll explain >.< No problem Since h  15 is the length of ML and 2h  8 is the length of LN, the combined lengths' would equal the total length of MN When you put that into an equation, it would look like this; h  15 + 2h  8 = 31 Do you understand a little better?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Lol nope, it's not 31. 31 is the length of the entire segment from M to N The question is asking for L to N which is 2h  8 so we have to solve the equation h  15 + 2h  8 = 31 Do you know how to solve the equation?
