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

So 175 = 17x  3 + 17x + 8

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
More like add 3 to 8, but you have the right idea. What does that give you?

Now I'm kind of lost there.

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

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
175 = 34x + 5 1755 = 34x 170 = 34x 170/34 = x 5 = x x = 5

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I'm not sure how you got 29

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

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou'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
 2 years ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.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
 2 years ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
 2 years ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
