# Equation practice with midpoints

Given information about the distance of a segment's midpoint from its endpoints, form and solve an equation in order to find the length of the segment.

### Problem

J is the midpoint of start overline, C, T, end overline
If:
space, C, J, equals, 8, x, minus, 5 and
space, J, T, equals, 5, x, plus, 4
Find C, T.
