1 Sec 1-2 Concept: Using Segments and Congruence Obj: given the segment addition postulate, find the length of a segment as measured by a s.g.

2 Postulate 1: Ruler Postulate The distance between points A and B, written as AB, is the absolute value of the difference between the coordinates of A and B AB is also called the length of AB A B X2X2 x1x1 AB AB = l x 2 -x 1 l

3 Example 1: AB 0123-2-3 Find the length of AB AB = l 2-(-3) l = l 5 l = 5

4 Segment Addition Postulate: If B is between A and C, then AB+BC = AC. If AB+BC =AC, then B is between A and C. ABC

5 Example 2: Two friends leave their homes and walk in a straight line towards the others home. When they meet one has walked 425 yds and the other has walked 267 yds. How far apart are their homes? AB + BC = AC 267 + 425 = AC 692 = AC Their houses are 692 yds apart A B C 267 425

6 Example 3: In the diagram of collinear points, GK=24, HJ = 10, and GH=HI=IJ. Find each length HI = IJ = GH = JK = IG = IK = 5 5 5 9 10 14

7 Example 4: Suppose M is between L and N. Use the segment addition postulate to solve for the variable. Then find the lengths of LM, MN and LN LM = 3x+8 MN = 2x-5 LN =23 LM = 7y +9 MN = 3y + 4 LN = 143 3x+82x-5 LMN 143 (3x+8) + (2x-5) = 23 5x+3=23 5x=20 X=4 LMN LM = 3x+8 3(4)+8 20 MN = 2x-5 2(4)-5 3 7y+93y+4 23 (7y+9) + (3y+4) = 143 10y + 13 =143 10y = 130 y=13 LM=7y+9 7(13)+9 100 MN=3y+4 3(13)+4 43

8 Example 5: Plot the given points in a coordinate plane. Then determine whether the line segments named are congruent. A(0,1), B(4,1), C(1,2), D(1,6); AB and CD? AB C D AB = 4 CD=4 Yes they are congruent
