| **There is a segment AB with a length of 14 cm and a point C on this segment. The AC segment is 3 / 7th AB. What is the length of the BC segment?**

We calculate the length of the segment AC, if it is 3/7 of the length of the segment AB, for this we multiply the length of the segment AB by the value of the part expressed as a fraction:

14 * 3/7 = 6 cm.

Determine the length of the segment BC, for this we subtract the length of the segment AC from the length of the segment AB:

14 – 6 = 8 cm.

Answer: The length of the BC segment is 8 cm.
