Putting a value to each point, lets use the following:

A - 0
B - 3 (AB = 3)
C - 4 (AC = 4)
D - 9 (BD = 6)

CD is 9-4 = 5.

BC = AC- AB = 4 - 3 = 1
CD = BD - BC = 6 -1 = 5

Hope this is now clear.

(A) 1
(B) 2
(C) 3
(D) 4
(E) 5


Given: The points are in order from A to D.
Given: Distance A to B = 3cm, Distance A to C = 4cm, Distance B to D = 6cm

Just draw a line:

A-----B-----C-----D
A--3--B--1--C--5--D
