On a number line, the distance between point A and point C [#permalink]  01 Apr 2006, 15:34
On a number line, the distance between point A and point C is 5 and the distance between point B and point C is 20. Does point C lie between point A and point B????

1. The distance between point A and B is 25
2. Point A lies to the left of point B.

Ans = A

There is no way to place C on the number line such that distance between B and C is 20, A and C is 5 and A and B is 25, yet still not lie between A and B.
