1. BagelsAreIcelandic

Would anyone like to help me in Geometry? :)

2. catsrule332

I'll try, shoot

3. BagelsAreIcelandic

Okay, I'll draw a picture right now.

|dw:1332383805942:dw| What is GDO equal to? Please explain the process, thank you. :)

5. catsrule332

Assuming it's a parallelogram: Square must equal 360degrees total. Each side gets 90 degrees because they are all equal? 90/2=45. So GDO (triangle) would equal 135degrees. That's my thinking.. Lol took geometry a long time ago

6. BagelsAreIcelandic

Oh, no no no. Ha ha you misunderstood. XD It's asking what letters are GDO equal to.

7. catsrule332

DGS

8. BagelsAreIcelandic

Can you explain WHY? Thanks

9. BagelsAreIcelandic

I don't understand your question. It's not necessary, Cat was able to figure it out without having that information.

10. catsrule332

What you're looking for is the same angle as D. So:|dw:1332384522936:dw|

11. BagelsAreIcelandic

Ok, do you think you could give me an example problem? Thanks

12. catsrule332

|dw:1332384726348:dw| In figure 1: you can see that both sides are equal = 90 degrees. in figure 2 I've shown that all four sides equal 90. a total of 360 degrees. the same angles are marked off. in fig 3: i've shown that those angles are the same also. 45 degrees. half of 90. make sense??

13. BagelsAreIcelandic

Cat, I appreciate your effort, but you're REALLY misunderstanding me.

14. BagelsAreIcelandic

I'll have to make myself more lucid: I'm NOT working on degrees. The image I gave you was asking what GDO is equal to, you said DGS, I assume this is correct. When I asked for an example problem, I wanted one similar to this. I apologize for my not making myself clear.

15. catsrule332

Sorry for misunderstanding. I guess all I can say is look at the alternate interior angles. It does have to do with the angles. Or:|dw:1332385432602:dw| Don't know what else to say? Hopefully you kind understand! Sorry I couldn't be more helpful

16. BagelsAreIcelandic

You still have not given me an example problem. I feel I understand the concept, but I was to be tested....
