Skateboard

In the skateboard design, VWbisects XYat point T, and XT=39.9cm. Find XY.

Point Tis the midpoint of XY . So, XT = TY = 39.9cm.

EXAMPLE 1

Find segment lengths

SOLUTION

XY = XT + TY

Segment Addition Postulate

= 39.9 + 39.9

Substitute.

= 79.8cm

Add.

ALGEBRA

Point Mis the midpoint of VW. Find the length of VM .

STEP 1

Write and solve an equation. Use the fact that VM = MW.

EXAMPLE 2

Use algebra with segment lengths

SOLUTION

VM= MW

Write equation.

4x–1= 3x + 3

Substitute.

x – 1 = 3

Subtract 3xfrom each side.

x = 4

Add 1 to each side.

slide3

STEP 2

Evaluate the expression for VMwhen x =4.

So, the length of VMis 15.

Check: Because VM = MW, the length of MWshould be 15. If you evaluate the expression for MW, you should find that MW = 15.

MW = 3x + 3 = 3(4) +3 = 15

EXAMPLE 2

Use algebra with segment lengths

VM = 4x – 1 = 4(4) – 1 = 15

ANSWER

The coordinates of endpoint Kare (3, – 2).

EXAMPLE 3

Use the Midpoint Formula

SOLUTION

FIND ENDPOINTLet (x, y) be the coordinates of endpoint K. Use the Midpoint Formula.

4 + y = 2

1 + x = 4

y =–2

x =3
