can some one help me? Parallel Lines "L" and "M" are cut by a transversal. Angle "A" measures (15 x + 6 ) degrees and angle "F" measures (5x+14) degrees. What are the degree measures of angles c & h ? Please try to show your work.

    ignore the bottom part. that has nothing to do with my math. top parallel line is line "L" and bottom parallel line is line "M"

    ive tried.... 15x + 6 = 5x + 14 -5x -5x 10x + 6 = 14 - 6 - 6 10x = 8 and it makes no sense. i need to find the angles of C and H

    A+C=180, A=H, and F=c. this stems from the fact that the two lines being intersected are parallel. susbstitution gives us A+F=180. plugging in the given values for A and F you get (15x+6)+(5x+14)=180 which reduced is 20x+20=180. from there it is just algebra to find x and find the numerical values of H and C
