Suki read the map's instructions: First, find the midpoint of segment UV, Or the treasure forever lost will be. Label this dreadful midpoint W, Or being well-off will never trouble you. W is in line with and between T and X, X! How clichéd! Can you guess what is next? TX is exactly two times TW, Be sure at X to bring a shovel or two.
