Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Therefore, (6x  4) + (8x  12) = 180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I can just add them together and use algebra to find x? 14x16=180 14x=164 x = 11.7142857142857

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Now, x is equal to 11.71. You have to plug it back into the given measurements as "x" to get their degrees
