I know, you can calculate them out
anonymous
  • anonymous
remember (N-2)*180?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oohhh
anonymous
  • anonymous
but i get confused though, thats y i need help :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
so how many total degrees are in each? N being number of sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
ois it 11-2*180?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry, I meant to calculate them separately
anonymous
  • anonymous
ooh, 5-2*180 + 6-2*180?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, but you don't want them totalled together; once you have the total degrees in each polygon, you need to find out how large each SEPARATE angle is in each polygon. This simply requires the total divided by the number of sides. from there, take another look at your picture...
anonymous
  • anonymous
...remembering that 360 degrees make up a full circle...
anonymous
  • anonymous
im confused man im sorry, i know ur tryin to help :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
k, how many total degrees are in a hexagon (N=6)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
320?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no: (6-2)*180=720; how many total degrees in a pentagon?
anonymous
  • anonymous
500?
anonymous
  • anonymous
show me your work, that is incorrect..
anonymous
  • anonymous
i did 5-2 wich is 3 and i multiplied 3 with 180
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats correct, but your arithmetic is wrong then; 3*180=540
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh my badd
anonymous
  • anonymous
k, so back to the hexagon: we have 720 degrees total in it, and 6 angles inside it, correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
so how large is each angle in the hexagon if they are all the same size?
anonymous
  • anonymous
120
anonymous
  • anonymous
bam! so how large are the angles on the pentagon?
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol, 108
anonymous
  • anonymous
k, so now we have the two adjacent angles to the desired angle in the picture, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
so remember that there are 360 degrees in a circle, and apply that to your picture
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont understand?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you agree that there are 360 degrees in a circle?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea
anonymous
  • anonymous
look at the picture, and how if you add up the two adjacent angles, plus the unknown one, it makes a circle.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ls the answer 132
anonymous
  • anonymous
close but not quite
anonymous
  • anonymous
redo your arithmetic
anonymous
  • anonymous
but 228+132 makes 360?
anonymous
  • anonymous
where'd you get 228?
anonymous
  • anonymous
105+120 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i added the 2 angles
anonymous
  • anonymous
which should not yield 228
anonymous
  • anonymous
is the answer 135?
anonymous
  • anonymous
BAM! thanks for sticking through the problem with me, I know it can be time-consuming, but you're giving me a little more faith in our younger generation and education system...
anonymous
  • anonymous
thx for the help man!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
glad I could, hope it didn't take too much of your time
