Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0polygons with four sides have angles that add to 360 degrees (20  5x) + (2x + 80) + (x^2  4) + (x^2 + 5) = 360 Add like terms 2x^2  3x + 101 = 360 Set the one side = to 0 2x^2  3x  259 = 0 Do you know how to solve this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you sure your problem is accurate... It doesn't come out to be a "nice" number and I would think it would at this level.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, I checked the angles are accurate. I am not clear about how you got 2x^2  3x  259 = 0. I thought it would be 2x^2+2x264=0. Any suggestions?
