The points L, M, N, P are equally spaced points on the real number line.  If L = 1/12 and P = 1/6, then what is M equal to?

L     M     N      P

1/12               1/6

 

There are 3 spaces, LM, MN, and NP. We divide the difference of 1/6 - 1/12 by 3.

 

1/6-1/12

= 1/6

 

1/6 / 3

= 1/18

 

Then M is 1/12 + 1/18= 5/36.
