Question

Find yz 11x+1 and 19x-31

Answer (Expert Verified)

The length of a segment is the number of units between its endpoints

The length of YZ is 45 units

How to determine length YZ

The given parameters are:

WX = 11x + 1

YZ = 19x – 31

Lengths WX and YZ are congruent.

So, we have:

Collect like terms

Evaluate the like terms

Divide both sides by 32

Recall that:

YZ = 19x – 31

So, we have:

Hence, the length of YZ is 45 units
