    so only 3x + 23 are equal

    3x + 23 and y are equal*

    then 2x + 12 and y are linear pairs....so like you said...they add up to 180 2x + 12 + y = 180

  24. lgbasallote

    and since y and 3x + 23 are equal, you can substitute 2x + 12 + 3x + 23 = 180 solve for x

    y is the same as 3x + 23?

    only if x = 29...

    2x + 12 + 3x + 23 = 180 5x + 35 = 180 5x = 145 x = 29 right
