Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So basically there are equal ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the lengths are, be careful when you say equal because sometimes they take that as being the same line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer is 70 and they are equal? correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because AB=143 and ABM = 70 so AB+BM=70 14373=70 BM=73 if you flip the letters around then u are reading it opposite direction so MB=73< turns positive i guess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I subtracted 73 from 143 and got 70

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In 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
