I really need help with this Geometry question! I am looking for an explanation not an answer.
>2.The distance from A to B is 143 mi. , and from B to C on another road, 57 mi. The distance from A to D is 143 mi., and from D to E on another road is 57 mi. Compare the distance from A to C by way of B with the distance from A to E by way of D.
This is exactly how the book words it, which really confuses me. Just looking for someone to help me. First time using Open study Thank you!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just kind of started drawing with A and went from there. They gave distances from A to B and from A to D so I knew both B and D had to connect to A. C and E could be anywhere
