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. (Picture below.)

    I'd say 55. Am I right? Or it's 125?

    HINT: x and 125 are supplementary...

    How do I know if they're supplementary?

    because it's a straight line

    they're a linear pair

    It would add up to equal 180

    How 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.

    Does it have to do with the lines? For example this question:

    Its the lower angle (It looks smaller so it has to be 55)

    ^ The answer for that one was 67.

    right, because those angles were alternate exterior angles

    Supplementary 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?

    and any angles who are on a straight line add up to 180

  21. AriPotta

    because, it's a straight line and straight lines are 180 degrees

    All lines are 180. So whenever we have an angles like that they will always equal 180 degrees together

    Okay, so if they're congruent that means they have the same number right? 110 would be the answer for that one?

    They are corresponding because they are in similar places

    I 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..

    the lines are parallel and cut by a tranversal which makes the angles i listed corresponding and congruent
