# Given: A M = 3 x − 1 M B = 4 x − 5 M is the midpoint of A B ¯ Find: A B To determine

To find:

The value of AB.

Explanation

Given:

AM=3x1

MB=4x5

And,

M is the midpoint of AB¯.

The Figure (1) is given as,

Figure (1)

Concept:

The midpoint of a line is that separates the given line into two equal lengths or two equal segments.

Calculation:

Since, M is the midpoint of AB¯, then it can be written as,

AM=MB(1)

AB=2AM(2)

Substitute 3x1 for AM and 4x5 for MB in the above equation (1).
