Let ABCD be a trapezoid with midsegment MN, and suppose the diagonals split MN into three segments MP, PQ, and QN. If AB=8 and CD = 12, find the lengths of the midsegment MN and the three segments MP, PQ, and QN.

This question doesn't make much sense because the length of line segments MP, PQ, and QM depend on the height of trapezoid ABCD. I'll make some changes in red ink.
