Use the angle addition postulate to say that
m < VUT = m < VUJ + m < JUT

So
175 = 17x  3 + 17x + 8

So after I do that I have 175 = 34x  3 + 8?

Ok what would I do next? Subtract the 3 and 8?

More like add 3 to 8, but you have the right idea. What does that give you?

I got to 175 Divided by 29 but It won't divide?

175 = 34x + 5
1755 = 34x
170 = 34x
170/34 = x
5 = x
x = 5

My bad here, Here is what it says: m<GFN = 4x + 10, m<NFE = 14x + 3 and m<GFE = 157Degrees. Find m<NFE

jim_thompson5910
Best Response
You've already chosen the best response.
1
m < GFE = m < GFN + m < NFE
157 = 4x+10 + 14x+3
157 = 18x+13
15713 = 18x
144 = 18x
144/18 = x
8 = x
x = 8

m<ABC = 17x + 8, m<ABK = 42Degrees, and m<KBC = 12x  4. Find m<ABCdw:1337113301573:dw

jim_thompson5910

1
m <ABC = m < ABK + m < KBC
17x + 8 = 42 + 12x  4
17x + 8 = 38 + 12x
17x12x = 38  8
5x = 30
x = 30/5
x = 6
So m < ABC = 17x+8 = 17(6)+8 = 102+8 = 110 degrees

Alright 2 more! Find x if m<BJK = 146 + 2x, m<IJK = 172Degress, and m<JJB = 2x + 26.dw:1337113828395:dw

jim_thompson5910

m < IJK = m < IJB + m < BJK
172 = 2x+26 + 146+2x
172 = 4x+172
172172 = 4x
0 = 4x
0/4 = x
0 = x
x = 0

Find x if m<LMN and 135Degrees, m<LMV = 1 + 45x, and m<VMN = 23x.dw:1337114419155:dw

jim_thompson5910

m < LMN = m < LMV + m < VMN
135 = 1+45x + 23x
135 = 1+68x
135+1 = 68x
136 = 68x
136/68 = x
2 = x
x = 2
