this one i'm a little more confused on .

3. anonymous

yeah this one is tricker,we can do it step by step

4. anonymous

in order to find CDE we need x, and in order to find x we have to solve an equation

55 is an impossible answer for this equation because none of these are available . how is that possible ? only options are : A. 50 B. 65 C. 115 D. 130

@balaa i gave you medals for showing it but 55 is wrong .

@satellite73 can you help me out ?

12. anonymous

could someone please just help me out here ? i've spent about 20 minutes on this question so far , it's getting to be a huge bother ...

13. anonymous

forget it , i'm just going to guess & i'll probably get it wrong . oh well . useless wasting this much time on one question .

14. anonymous

nevermind , it's 130 . that stupid equation on the triangle messed it up for me and confused me .

CDE = 115 degrees Solve the following for x: 2 x - 15 = 50 + x x = 65 2 x - 15 = 115

Thank you for the medal.
