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.

- anonymous

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.

are you absolutely sure there is no picture linked to this

- anonymous

There is no picture at all just a word problem

- anonymous

Let me look at what you drew out..1sec

- dan815

well no need to draw anything then just vague picture u need to

- dan815

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

- anonymous

I think I understand this

- anonymous

So basically there are equal ?

- dan815

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

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

oh okay, well thank you so much

- dan815

73

- anonymous

How is it 73?

- dan815

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

- anonymous

I subtracted 73 from 143 and got 70

- anonymous

Ohhhhhhhh I was suppose to subtract 70 from 143. correct now?

- anonymous

Thank you I got it. Awesome!

- phi

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)
