Point C ∈ AB , AB = 18 cm. The distance from C to A is 3 cm shorter than the distance to B. Find AC and CB.

Accepted Solution

Answer:AC = 7.5 cm CB=10.5 CmStep-by-step explanation:Given that point  C in between point A and BAB= 18 cmlets distance between CA = xthen  distance between CB will be =x +3 Also give that AB =18 cm So by adding CA and ABx + x +3 =182 x =15So x=7.5 cmSo AC = 7.5 cm CB=10.5 Cm
