Answer:26 unitsStep-by-step explanation:If point F is on the line segment EG, then EF+FG = EG

GivenFG=8,

EF=2x+4

EG=4x−10

Substitute the given values into the formula;2x+4+8 = 4x−10

2x+12 = 4x-10

collect like terms2x-4x = -10-12

-2x = -22

x = 22/2

x =11

Since EF = 2x+4

EF = 2(11)+4

EF = 22+4

EF = 26

Hence the numerical length of EF is 26 units
