Again, because we have a bisected angle in a triangle....we have that

 

AX / XB =  AC /BC

 

AX / XB  =  28 / 56

 

AX/ XB  =  1 / 2      which implies that

 

AX : XB  =  1 : 2  

 

Then  AX + XB   make up three equal parts of AB

 

And AX  is 1/3  of the three equal parts....so...

 

(1/3) 50  = 50/3  = AX

 

 

cool cool cool
