Hi Forum,

I searched in some places and I couldn't find a good way to do this. The way the solution is presented is not very clear.

In the triangle ABC, AB=4 and AC=8. If M is the mid point of BC and AM=3 what is the length of BC?

Now, if M is the midpoint between B and C then x and y are equal.Code:A 4 8 3 x y B M C

The solution considers them as two different numbers.

AMisthe median, right?

How should I proceed now?

Thanks!
