    Answer:

    VW=4\ units

    Step-by-step explanation:

    step 1

    Find the value of x

    In this problem i will assume that  U,V and W are collinear and V is between U and W

    so

    UW=UV+VW —-> by addition segment postulate

    substitute the given values

    14=(x+8)+(6x-8)

    solve for x

    14=7x

    x=2

    step 2

    Find the value of VW

    VW=(6x-8)

    substitute the value of x

    VW=(6(2)-8)=4\ units
