i dont know what to make it equal

so only 3x + 23 are equal

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
3x + 23 and y are equal*
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then 2x + 12 and y are linear pairs....so like you said...they add up to 180 2x + 12 + y = 180
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and since y and 3x + 23 are equal, you can substitute 2x + 12 + 3x + 23 = 180 solve for x

Colt45 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
y is the same as 3x + 23?

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
do you know the rest from there?

only if x = 29...
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
2x + 12 + 3x + 23 = 180 5x + 35 = 180 5x = 145 x = 29 right
