    Answer:

    Length of the segments will be 10 cm and 45 cm.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the length of one segment is x.

    Then by the statement of this question,

    “one segment is 5 cm more than four times the length of another”.

    Length of other segment = 4x + 5

    (4x + 5) – x = 35

    4x + 5 – x = 35

    3x + 5 = 35

    3x = 35 – 5

    3x = 30

    x = 10 cm

    Length of other segment = 4(10) + 5 = 45 cm

    Therefore, two segments are of length 10 cm and 45 cm.
