Since Abdul and Bard are both at the same distance from the School Abdul  School  BarbSince Barb's house is halfway between the School and Carlos's school School  Barb  CarlosSince the school is 4 miles from Carlos's house, School is 2 miles away from the Barb's house. Since Abdul and Barb are at same distance from the School, even Abdul is 2 miles away from school. Abdul 2 School 2 Barb 2 Carlos So distance between Abdul's and Carlos's houses are 2+ 2+ 2 = 6km(Option D)

Barb’s house is halfway between the school and Carlos’s house. If the school is 4 miles from Carlos’s house, how many miles is Abdul’s house from Carlos’s house? A. \(1{}^1/_3\) B. 2 C. 4 D. 6 E. 8 The school is halfway between Abdul’s house and Barb’s house. Sketch it to get: A S BAside: The distances between A and S and between S and B are EQUAL Barb’s house is halfway between the school and Carlos’s house. Add Carlos's house to drawing: A S B CAside: All 3 distances are EQUAL If the school is 4 miles from Carlos’s house...A SBCSo, the two RED distances add to 4 miles Since those two distances are EQUAL, each distance must equal 2 miles. That is: A2miles S2miles B2miles C...how many miles is Abdul’s house from Carlos’s house?The distance = 6 miles Answer: Cheers, Brent
