# Given: A M = 4 x − 4 M B = 5 x + 2 A B = 25 Find: M B

To determine

To find:

The value of MB.

Explanation

Given:

AM=4xâˆ’4

MB=5x+2

And,

AB=25

The Figure (1) is given as,

Figure (1)

Approach:

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

According to addition property, if a point D lies in the between of an line AB, then

Calculation:

According to addition property, if a point M lies in the between of an line AB, then

AM+MB=AB

Substitute 4xâˆ’4 for AM, 5x+2 for MB and 25 for AB in the above equation
