Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the angles of a triangle all add up to 180, so add these three expressions and set them equal to 180 like this \[4x + 5 + 3x + 20 + 8x + 15 = 180\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure it does, if we plug 9.3 back into the equation 4x + 5 + 3x + 20 + 8x + 15 = 180 the result will be 180 = 180 which means we've found the right number for x
