Can anyone help me with this problem?

Given:

A person cuts a rope into two pieces that are equal in length. The first piece is 4 times the length of the person’s forearm minus 1 inch. The second piece is 3 times the length of the person’s forearm plus 15 inches.

Task:

1. Construct the linear equation that represents the situation in the given using x as the variable for the person’s forearm.

2. Solve the linear equation you constructed both algebraically and graphically to find the length of the person’s forearm. Show your work.

3. Briefly discuss whether or not your answer is reasonable.
