# On the segment MK = 26cm, point A was marked so that AM = 19cm, and point B so that BK = 12cm.

On the segment MK = 26cm, point A was marked so that AM = 19cm, and point B so that BK = 12cm. Find the length of the segment AB.

On the segment MK = 26 cm, point A was marked so that AM = 19 cm, and point B so that BK = 12 cm. Find the length of the segment AB.

By the condition of the problem, it is known that MK = 26 cm, AM = 19 cm, BK = 12 cm.Based on these conditions, we can say that point B is closer to point M, and point A is closer to point K. Let us find the sum of the segments AM and BK, then subtract the length of the MK segment from the result obtained.

AM + BK = 19 + 12 = 31 (cm);

AB = AM + BK – MK = 31 – 26 = 5 (cm).

Answer: the length of the segment AB is 5 centimeters.
