<p>From the diagram, we can see that the total length of <code>\purple{<var>SEG_TOTAL</var>}</code> is the sum of <code>\blue{<var>SEG_1</var>}</code> and <code>\green{<var>SEG_2</var>}</code>:</p>
<p><code>\qquad \blue{<var>SEG_1</var>} + \green{<var>SEG_2</var>} = \purple{<var>SEG_TOTAL</var>}</code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p>Substitute in the expressions that were given for each length:</p>
<p><code>\qquad \blue{<var>COEF_1</var>x + <var>CONST_1</var>} + \green{<var>COEF_2</var>x + <var>CONST_2</var>} = \purple{<var>TOTAL</var>}</code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p>Combine like terms:</p>
<p><code>\qquad<var>COEF_1 + COEF_2</var>x + <var>CONST_1 + CONST_2</var> = \purple{<var>TOTAL</var>}</code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p>Subtract <code><var>CONST_1 + CONST_2</var></code> from both sides:</p>
<p><code>\qquad<var>COEF_1 + COEF_2</var>x = <var>TOTAL - CONST_1 - CONST_2</var></code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p>Divide both sides by <code><var>COEF_1 + COEF_2</var></code> to find <code class="hint_pink">x</code>:</p>
<p><code class="hint_pink">\qquad x = <var>X</var></code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p>Substitute <code class="hint_pink"><var>X</var></code> for <code class="hint_pink">x</code> in the expression that was given for <code><var>SEG_2</var></code>:
<p><code class="hint_green">\qquad <var>SEG_2</var> = <var>COEF_2</var>(\pink{<var>X</var>}) + <var>CONST_2</var></code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p>Simplify:</p>
<p><code>\qquad \green{<var>SEG_2</var> = <var>COEF_2 * X</var> + <var>CONST_2</var>}</code></p>
