Q:
# math help Brainliest will be given I solved RS wrong how do I do it I got 112

Accepted Solution

A:

R is between S and T, so this implies that R is on line ST and we can say

SR+RT = ST

plug in the given expressions to get

(-2x+24)+(4x+10) = 4x+12

Now solve for x

(-2x+24)+(4x+10) = 4x+12

-2x+24+4x+10 = 4x+12

2x+34 = 4x+12

2x+34-2x = 4x+12-2x

34 = 2x+12

34-12 = 2x+12-12

22 = 2x

2x = 22

2x/2 = 22/2

x = 11

If x = 11, then RS is,

RS = -2*x+24

RS = -2*11+24

RS = -22+24

RS = 2

Answers:

x = 11 and RS = 2

SR+RT = ST

plug in the given expressions to get

(-2x+24)+(4x+10) = 4x+12

Now solve for x

(-2x+24)+(4x+10) = 4x+12

-2x+24+4x+10 = 4x+12

2x+34 = 4x+12

2x+34-2x = 4x+12-2x

34 = 2x+12

34-12 = 2x+12-12

22 = 2x

2x = 22

2x/2 = 22/2

x = 11

If x = 11, then RS is,

RS = -2*x+24

RS = -2*11+24

RS = -22+24

RS = 2
