2 Answer

  • the answer is 3x-14 . . . . . . . . . . . . 




  • Answer:

    JL = 3x - 2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given 3 segments:

    JM = 5x -8

    LM = 2x - 6

    JL

    where the longitude of  JM is the addition between JL  and LM, then the next equation must be satisfied:

    JL + LM = JM

    JL = JM -  LM

    JL = (5x -8) - (2x - 6)

    JL = (5x - 2x) (-8 + 6)

    JL = 3x - 2
