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.
So basically I don't understand the 2nd one at all- can anyone help explain this to me ? it would be helpful.. I will fan you!
I just don't understand where M came form and what I need to add up.
Nobody will have the energy to draw this on a paper and find out this silly answer 😂
Well Im supper stuck lol I know no one wants to help but hoping someone will ..im going crazy
I just want an explanation not a answer or someone to do my work for me
are you absolutely sure there is no picture linked to this
There is no picture at all just a word problem
Let me look at what you drew out..1sec
well no need to draw anything then just vague picture u need to
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
I think I understand this
So basically there are equal ?
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?
oh okay, well thank you so much
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
Ohhhhhhhh I was suppose to subtract 70 from 143. correct now?
Thank you I got it. Awesome!
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|
Thank you SO much. I believe I got it now, thank your:)
