2Using Action ButtonsAs you maneuver throughout the PowerPoint presentation you will encounter three types of buttons. Two of the buttons are arrows; one pointing to the left (go to the previous slide) and one pointing to the right (go to the next slide). The last button is in the shape of a u-turn. This button will take you to the last slide that you visited.
3What is Segment Addition Postulate? Segment Addition Postulate (SAP) states that if point B is between point A and point C, then AB + BC = AC. If AB + BC = AC, then B is between A and C.ABC
4Solve for x. 4x + 1 + 3 = 8 4x + 4 = 8 - 4 - 4 4x = 4 /4 /4 x = 1 B is between A and C. Find the value of x and the measure of BC if: AB = 3, BC = 4x + 1, AC = 8.Solve for x.4x = 84x + 4 = 84x = 4/4 /4x = 1Plug x in and find BC.BC = 4x + 1BC = 4 (1) + 1BC = 4 + 1BC = 5
5Solve for x. 24 + 3x = 7x – 4 - 3x - 3x 24 = 4x – 4 + 4 + 4 28 = 4x Y is between X and Y, find the value of x and the measure of XY. XY = 24, YZ = 3x, XZ = 7x – 4.Solve for x.24 + 3x = 7x – 4- 3x - 3x24 = 4x – 428 = 4x/4 /47 = xPlug in x and find XZ.XZ = 7x – 4XZ = 7 (7) – 4XZ = 49 – 4XZ = 45
6Try it Out!Try out a few practice problems to help improve your understanding of Segment Addition Postulate. If you answer a problem correctly, you will automatically proceed to the next problem. If you answer the problem incorrectly, you will be taken back to the notes and examples pages. (You must get both answers right to move to the next problem.)Good Luck!!!
7If M is between L and N and LM = 2, MN = 4x + 6, LN = 32, then find x and MN. 7910MN =34304018
8If F is between E and G and EF = 26, FG = 5x, EG = 9x –6, find x and EG. 89EF =66647880
9If U is between T and V and TU = 2x, UV = 26, TV = 13x -7, find x and TU. 5423TU =1659
