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!

It says draw this out to complete the problem but this didnt help me understand either.

- anonymous

Did they give a picture with this with the locations of A, B, C, D, and E?

- anonymous

Nope they told me to draw it out, and just gave me the lengths.
I typed exactly what the question said

I guess it doesn't really matter where they are. I just kind of placed them randomly

A to C by way of B would be
AB + BC = 143 + 57
make sense?

- anonymous

Sorry I'm looking it over trying to understand, 1 second

- anonymous

okay do 'by way of' means another road and it will be in the middle ?

- anonymous

so* not do. whoops. sorry

- anonymous

"by way of" basically means passing or going through.

- anonymous

oh okay, thank you! So why didn't you put the point in alphabetized order?

- anonymous

Sorry I'm just staring my Geom class and I will give you medal!

- anonymous

I 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

- anonymous

hmmm okay, so now I need to 'compare' which means?

- anonymous

it says to compare A to C and to compare A to E

- anonymous

Once you have the distances, say whether they're equal, or which one is less or mor

- anonymous

*more

- anonymous

So what do I do from here?- I'm saying. Add the miles ?

- anonymous

yes. Add from A to C.
then add from A to E

- anonymous

Which is exactly the same sum. so the sum of these is 200?

- anonymous

yeah, so you'd just say that the distances are equal

- anonymous

Okay!!! THANK YOU so much. means tons. I am just really struggling with this class. thank you sir!

- anonymous

you're welcome
