@hawkfalcon I clearly have an answer down, but I'm just double checking to see if it's correct. If you don't like it, please don't comment on my stuff.

Well each angle of a hexagon is 120 degrees, so you subtract that from 180 and divide by two. That should help:)

4. Ashley10116

So, 60 divided by 2?

5. hawkfalcon

Try that:p

6. Ashley10116

Try? Haha.

7. hawkfalcon

I can't say yes can I? :P

8. Ashley10116

@jim_thompson5910 I think it's 18, and hawk thinks it's 30. Help?

9. hawkfalcon

I gave you the logic behind my reasoning, and explained how to do it:O

10. hawkfalcon

Why do you think it is 18?

11. jim_thompson5910

Draw out a hexagon |dw:1345587910416:dw|

12. Ashley10116

But I have reasoning, too...

13. Ashley10116

Sorry, computer is being dumb. -___-

14. jim_thompson5910

And extend one of the sides |dw:1345587933732:dw|

15. jim_thompson5910

That exterior angle is 360/6 = 60 degrees

16. hawkfalcon

|dw:1345587963358:dw|

17. jim_thompson5910

So the interior angle (which is supplementary to it) is 180 - 60 = 120 degrees

18. jim_thompson5910

So if x is that unknown angle you want to find, then x+120+x = 180 2x+120 = 180 2x = 180-120 2x = 60 x = 60/2 x = 30

@jim_thompson5910 thats exactly what I told her >.<

20. jim_thompson5910

true, I'm just using x and doing it in an algebraic way

21. hawkfalcon

@Ashley10116 do you believe me now?:P

22. Ashley10116

@hawkfalcon Yah, I just needed another opinion. Haha. You said "try that" which made me a bit uneasy.

23. hawkfalcon

x_x I didn't think I was allowed to say yes
