    Angle CAB is 40°, and angle DBA is 50°. Angle CAB is 50°, and angle DBA is 60°. Angle DBA is 40°. Angle CAB is 60°.

    now when they say DAB is 80 degrees do they mean angle A or what?

    I am thinking this deals with the idea that the diagonals should bisect their respective angles... so I believe we can assume this is true for it to be a rhombus: |dw:1338659975193:dw|

    So, if we are bisecting an angle of 80 degrees, then we know that the bisected angle is 1/2 of 80, or 40: |dw:1338660097272:dw|

    So, you can also conclude that the other angle using the sum of interior angles of a triangle. 40 + x + 90 = 180, x = 50 Now, which answer 'fits' for our diagram now? |dw:1338660264049:dw|

    Yep! Basically, we just assume that it is a rhombus, and that the properties of a rhombus apply. The ideal answer should just pop out as we fill in the information. :D
