The points A, B, C and D are on a number line, not necessarily in this order. If the distance between A and B is 18 and the distance between C and D is 8, what is the distance between B and D?
1. The distance between C and A is the same as the distance between C and B.
2. A is to the left of D on the number line.

E - even after combining the statements I am not sure of D's position. Stmt 1 says C is in the middle of AB but what's the sequence? Is it ACB or BCA....accordingly D's position is not fixed. D cud be between AC or CB or after B in ACB case. It is after A in BCA case - BCAD.
