    So this is Problem 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 he distance form A to E by way of D. THIS was my first problem and I drew this all out and added up them to 20each so I said they were equal.

    Now the next questions says this and this is the one I do not understand at all. 3. In exercise 2, if it is 70 mi. from A to M on the road to B and 70 mi, from A to N on the road to D, compare the distance from M to B with he distance form N to D.

    now u know that AB=143 AD=143 if ABM=70 that means BM actually went backward by -73 if ADN=70 so DN = -73 aswell these lengths are the same DN=BM

    the lengths are, be careful when you say equal because sometimes they take that as being the same line

    So the answer is 70 and they are equal? correct?

    How is it 73?

    because AB=143 and ABM = 70 so AB+BM=70 143-73=70 BM=-73 if you flip the letters around then u are reading it opposite direction so MB=73<--- turns positive i guess

    I subtracted 73 from 143 and got 70

    In exercise 2, if it is 70 mi. from A to M on the road to B a that means M is somewhere between A and B (M is 70 miles from A on the way to B) |dw:1440280578790:dw|
