    you do know the full length of the line. The line is jkl, and you know segments jk, kl, and jl, try drawing it out and seeing if that clears it up for you.

    right your setup is correct now you simple solve the equation for y\[\left( 8y+4 \right)+\left( 4y+8 \right)=15y-9\]

    @Maharot Thankyou. You gave a good layout. Though you should let others try and figure out before you just complete it 100%
