4-120.

Identify the length of the missing section of each line. Assume that the lines are divided into equal parts.  

  1. A line segment, from 0 to 36, divided into 3 sections, with a bracket including the right 2 sections, labeled with a question mark.

    How many segments is broken into? Use this to figure out the value of each segment.

  1. A line segment, from 0 to 36, divided into 4 sections, with a bracket including the middle 2 sections, labeled with a question mark.

    How many segments is 36 broken into? Use this to figure out the value of each segment.

    . Be sure to show why this answer is correct.

  1. A line segment, from 0 to 16, divided into 8 sections, with a bracket including the last 5 sections, labeled with a question mark.

    How is this problem the same or different than parts (a) and (b)?
