Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Imagine this is a set of lines in the form of an x. 1. On one side of the x you have (11x37)° 2. And on the other side of the x you have (7x+27)° Now... Find the measure of each marked angle. dw:1327300660128:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1327301528168:dw That wording might have made it a bit hard to understand with the 1 and 2 acting as variables. x + a = 180 ; supplementary angles on a line x + b = 180 ; supplementary angles on a line a = 180  x b = 180  x easier to see that they are equal. So set your two angles equal and solve 11x37 = 7x+27

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I had to do something wrong I got (11x37)°=(7x+27) 7x+37 7x+37 4x=64 /4 /4 x=16 But when plugged in I get two different numbers. (11(16)37) = 140° and (7(16)+27) = 139°
