28Tylerr 3 years ago m<VUT = 175Degrees, m<VUJ = 17x - 3, and m<JUT = 17x + 8. Find x. Show Work an Please Help. Drawing Below -->

2. 28Tylerr

Just tell me what you can't read! (:

3. jim_thompson5910

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

4. jim_thompson5910

So 175 = 17x - 3 + 17x + 8

5. jim_thompson5910

6. 28Tylerr

Alright I will tell you what I come up with.

7. jim_thompson5910

alright sounds great

8. 28Tylerr

I would add the 2 17x? right?

9. jim_thompson5910

yes

10. 28Tylerr

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

11. jim_thompson5910

yes that's correct

12. 28Tylerr

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

13. jim_thompson5910

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

14. 28Tylerr

Ok that is a postive 3 not a negative correct?

15. jim_thompson5910

yes positive 3

16. jim_thompson5910

-3 + 8 is the same as 8 - 3

17. 28Tylerr

Ok that gets me to 11, Now I have 175 = 34x ?

18. 28Tylerr

Now I'm kind of lost there.

19. jim_thompson5910

oh i misread the number above

20. jim_thompson5910

you should have 175 = 34x + 5

21. 28Tylerr

Alright x = ?

22. 28Tylerr

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

23. jim_thompson5910

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

24. jim_thompson5910

I'm not sure how you got 29

25. 28Tylerr

I'm not sure either lol, I have 4 more can you help? I'm kind of in a hurry too.

26. jim_thompson5910

sure just go for it

27. jim_thompson5910

we'll see how much we get done

28. 28Tylerr

Alright thanks a lot Jim!, My next one is:|dw:1337112767573:dw|

29. 28Tylerr

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

30. jim_thompson5910

m < GFE = m < GFN + m < NFE 157 = 4x+10 + 14x+3 157 = 18x+13 157-13 = 18x 144 = 18x 144/18 = x 8 = x x = 8

31. 28Tylerr

Alright give me a min and I'll give you the next one lol.

32. 28Tylerr

Alrightt are you ready for the next one?

33. jim_thompson5910

yes

34. 28Tylerr

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

35. jim_thompson5910

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

36. 28Tylerr

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

37. jim_thompson5910

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

38. 28Tylerr

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

39. 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

40. 28Tylerr

Alright Thanks Jim, If I ever need anymore is alright if I just PM You?

41. jim_thompson5910

sure I don't mind

42. 28Tylerr

Alright, Do you teach anything?

43. jim_thompson5910

no, but I'm learning to become a math teacher

44. 28Tylerr

Oh really, Thats good. You are really smart I can tell! What kind of math are you going teach?

45. jim_thompson5910

probably hs or junior hs math

46. 28Tylerr

Thats good, Keep it up I would say you would be a great teacher! Thanks a lot though!

47. jim_thompson5910

thanks and I'm glad I could help
