Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First off, you need to know that Bisect means to split in half, so if the whole angle is 5x and half of it is 3x +10 then the equation, so the easiest way i would approch the equation would be: 6x + 20 = 5x 6x 6x 20 = 1x Divide both sides by 1 20 = X

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05x = 3x + 10 2x = 10 x = 5 5*5 or 3*5+10 Answer for each smaller angle is 25 So the final answer is 2*25 or 50
