Question #19214

If point M is a midpoint of segment XY, and segment MX=(2x+3) and segment XY=(4x+6), find x...
Please Help............. It's either I think fraction 5/4 or number 4....

Expert's answer

X______M______Y

MX=XY/2 because M is a midpoint. So we can construct the following equation by substituting given expressions:

2x+3=(4x+6)/2

2x+3=2x+3

0=0 this equation holds for any value of x.

Thus, we can't find x from data available. The statement is insufficient.
