Step-by-step explanation:

in this problem, we are solving for the amount of apple that Paloma eats

1. she ate 2/8 of a complete apple -hence the will be a remainder, we will find

that remainder

2. she also ate 3/8 of the remainder for lunch

3. we then proceed to calculate all apple she ate in total

2 she ate 3/8 of the remaining 3/4 apple

3. in total she ate 1/4+ 9/32

solution:

Hey there! :D

The midpoint and the outside line are symmetrical to eachother, 2(BF)= AE

Two midpoint segments equals one AE segment.

So, use the representation above and plug in the numbers.

2(23)= 5x -4

56= 5x-4

Add 4 to both sides.

60=5x

Divide by the 5.

x=12

I hope this helps!
