# 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

K is the midpoint of start overline, J, L, end overline
If:
space, J, K, equals, 5, x, plus, 1 and
space, K, L, equals, 7, x, minus, 3
Find J, L.
