In the diagram below, BD is parallel to XY. What is the value of x?
Note: BD and XY have the little line over them but I have no idea how to put it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'd say 55. Am I right? Or it's 125?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0HINT: x and 125 are supplementary...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How do I know if they're supplementary?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because it's a straight line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It would add up to equal 180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How do I know if I should put 55 or 125 because last time I did a problem like that and the answer was the same as 125.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does it have to do with the lines? For example this question:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Its the lower angle (It looks smaller so it has to be 55)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^ The answer for that one was 67.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right, because those angles were alternate exterior angles

marcoduuuh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Supplementary lines: subtract from 180. Alternate exterior angles: the same as the other line. Am I right? If yes, how do I know the difference from both of the different lines?

AriPotta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and any angles who are on a straight line add up to 180

AriPotta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because, it's a straight line and straight lines are 180 degrees

marcoduuuh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think so... Okay, let me see if I've got it. Okay, so for that one... That's a Alternate exterior angle?

AriPotta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2those are corresponding angles

Geometry_Hater

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2X is corresponding

AriPotta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2they are congruent too though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See... That's what I don't understand. How do you guys know they are congruent. Sorry. i'm stupid. :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2look at the pic i posted

AriPotta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it shows all angles that are congruent

Geometry_Hater

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2All lines are 180. So whenever we have an angles like that they will always equal 180 degrees together

marcoduuuh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait... I'm thinking haha.

marcoduuuh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so if they're congruent that means they have the same number right? 110 would be the answer for that one?

marcoduuuh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so for this one it isn't congruent am i right? so the answer would be 75?

AriPotta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2they are also corresponding angles

Geometry_Hater
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2They are corresponding because they are in similar places

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I DON'T GET THIS.

Geometry_Hater

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1349397323829:dw 1 and 5 would be corresponding angles because they are in the same places

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you can read what i wrote lol.

marcoduuuh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can! Wait... So that would mean every line is corresponding? Why do I sometimes have to put the same number that's on top and then other times i have to subtract from 180..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Every line isnt corresponding......... For instance in my drawing 1 and 5 are corresponding but not 1 & 6

AriPotta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, no. i mean those ANGLES are corresponding

AriPotta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the lines are parallel and cut by a tranversal which makes the angles i listed corresponding and congruent
