    The picture shows a stand for keeping a synthesizer. The top surface of the stand is parallel to the base, as shown. Which expression about the angles p and q is correct?

    The less than signs stand for angles.

    What does that do? isn't that the same picture as the one in the question?

    yes. I thought if I drew it out, it might look clearer.

    have you heard of corresponding angles?

    Corresponding angles: 'the angles that occupy the same relative position at each intersection where a straight line crosses two others. If the two lines are parallel, the corresponding angles are equal.'

    so it's not A?

    In this case, the corresponding angle of q would be... |dw:1346354360998:dw|

    A states that <p=<q . As an example, if <p=3° then <q=3°

  27. aliceglass20

    but aren't angles p and q different?

  28. aliceglass20

    so how do they both equal 3?

    B states that <q=180°-<p . As an example, if <p=3°, then the equation would be... <q=180°-3° =177°

  31. monokerous

    You are correct. angles p and q do not equal to each other so A cannot be the answer.

    C states that <p=2(<q) You do not know for sure that <p is 2 times <q so you can disregard C. D states that <q=90°-<p

    D and B are almost the same, except B is a line |dw:1346355007844:dw| and D states that <p+<q=90° which would be... |dw:1346355020286:dw| Something like that.
