Critical thinking questions:
19) Points A, B, C, D, and E are collinear and in
that order. Find AC if AE = x and
CE = x.
AC = AE - CE = 

20) Write a segment addition problem using three
points (like question 11) that asks the student
to solve for x but has a solution x.
Many possibilities: AB = x, BC = , AC = 
