N is between A and X. AN=x+1, NX= x^2, and AN=21. Find x and the length of each segment.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

AN = 21 =x+1

x=21-1 =20

NX= x^2

NX=20^2

NX= 400

AX = AN+NX = 21 +400 = 421

how do i solve for X???

WE KNOW THAT AN =x+1

again we know that AN= 21

THEREFORE

AN=x+1 =21

x+1=21

x=21-1

x= 20
