I hope this helps. Have a nice day ðŸ˜€## Answer:

## Explanation:

Consider the case where each part is of length 1. Then the midpoint of the first segment is at 1/2.

a)If there are 3 segments, the midpoint of the last segment is halfway between 2 and 3, at 2 1/2. The distance from the first midpoint to the last midpoint is …… 2 1/2 – 1/2 = 2 . . . . . that is, 2/3 of the total line length

When the line length is m, that is

2/3Â·m_____

b)If there are 5 segments, the midpoint of the last segment is halfway between 4 and 5, at 4 1/2. The distance from the first midpoint to the last midpoint is …… 4 1/2 – 1/2 = 4 . . . . . that is, 4/5 of the total line length

When the line length is m, that is

4/5Â·m
