# Draw any line segment, say AB.Take any point C lying in between A and B. Measure the lengths of AB, BC and AC. Is AB = AC + CB?

[Note: If A, B, C are any three points on a line such AC + CB = AB, then we can be sure that C lies between A and B]

**Solution:**

We will be using the concept of the line segment to solve this.

Let us consider the line AB with point C being in the center of A and B and AB = 7 cm.

AC = 3 cm, CB = 4 cm.

Therefore, AC + CB = 3 cm + 4 cm = 7 cm.

But, AB = 7 cm.

Hence, AB = AC + CB

## Draw any line segment, say AB Take any point C lying in between A and B. Measure the lengths of AB, BC and AC. Is AB = AC + CB? [Note: If A, B, C are any three points on a line such AC + CB = AB, then we can be sure that C lies between A and B]

**Summary:**

When we draw any line segment, say AB and take any point C lying in between A and B, we see that AB = AC + CB.
