<LPM AND <PMN, find the value of x
A. 22.5 B. 7.5 C. 15 D. 30 i dont know how to solve for this, it was kind of confuzing
yep its confusing cuz question is not properly framed. but we can make out the thing by looking at figure & options :)
for ex, therez no <LPM in the figure... its a typo it must be <LMP, you see ?
and there should be a BOX at vertex M, showing that its a RIGHT angle, but its missing !
it looks right angle, so it should sum to 90 : 2x + 4x = 90 6x = 90 x = ?
thats right! sometimes we have to work backwards like this when we dont understand the question :)
