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

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

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

    -3 + 8 is the same as 8 - 3

    175 = 34x + 5 175-5 = 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
