## bishopbabyy0362 3 years ago 2. how are angle 6 and angle 2 related? a. corresponding angles b. alternate interior c. same-side interior angles d. none

Corresponding angles

3. bishopbabyy0362

thank you !!

4. bishopbabyy0362

can you help me with another one ?

5. bishopbabyy0362

6. bishopbabyy0362

Find the value of x. The diagram is not to scale. Lines f and g are parallel. a. 10 b. 11 c. 12 d. -11

7. bishopbabyy0362

8. Rosh007

is line f and g are parallel?

9. bishopbabyy0362

yess

10. bishopbabyy0362

im trying to find the value of x

11. Rosh007

Ok.. well....... you know about corrsponding angles right?

12. bishopbabyy0362

yes

13. Rosh007

yes... good.. you know that hen two parallel lines cut by another lines... the corrsponding angles forming will be equal?

14. Rosh007

*** when two parallel lines

15. bishopbabyy0362

yes i know that(:

16. Rosh007

so in this case|dw:1352432083877:dw|

17. Rosh007

hint use the property of corresponding angles same whn cut by parallel lines

18. Rosh007

19. bishopbabyy0362

so the top one would be 9x + 26 = (but why did you add "y")?

20. Rosh007

yes... that is exactly right....i thought that you would indicate y... but you are right

21. bishopbabyy0362

okay, so how to we solve for x?

22. Rosh007

now... you know that when a lin is cut by a line the total angl is 180... look figure|dw:1352432520752:dw|

23. Rosh007

so compare this figure and above figure... what you can infere?

24. bishopbabyy0362

yupp i know that too (:

25. Rosh007

am I clear?

26. bishopbabyy0362

kind of.. im a little confused.. im just not sure how to solve for x lol. i know that a straight line equals 180, but in the picture i attached it doesnt look like the one you drew, thats whats confusing me

27. Rosh007

ok... take a look at line f|dw:1352433571221:dw|... also look at blow figure |dw:1352433681861:dw| hope now you can find x...

28. bishopbabyy0362

i think this is wrong roshh,,, lol because since yiou have a line bisecting the 180 line(staright line) on each side has a differetn measure, then you said the bottom one is 180 also, but its vertical to the other one which has to hve a diff measure, do you know wht i mean?

29. Rosh007

ok...|dw:1352433983075:dw| f is a straight line h is a straight line Do you agree?

30. Rosh007

consider a line is divide|dw:1352434603907:dw|d by another line then the opposite angle will be always equal..

31. Rosh007

and also p+y = x+p =x+q = q+y = 180 degree always

32. Rosh007

hope you got it now... so can you just give me how you reached the answer?

33. bishopbabyy0362

well i guessed lol.. i looked at my options and seen there was two 11's so i figured one of them had to be right.. so i guessed 11 (: lol

34. Rosh007

well... guesing won't always help. but understanding th method will... now look...|dw:1352436156882:dw| with refernce to th blow figure|dw:1352436281477:dw| but we know that p+s = 180 degree since (refer the previous comment and th figure (and also p+y = x+p =x+q = q+y = 180 degree always and the figure above it)... Now... we have p +s = 180

35. Rosh007

that is 9x+26+5x = 180 now can you just solve for x (step by step)

36. bishopbabyy0362

ohhhhhh okay lol i get it. i got 11, thank you (:

37. Rosh007

you are welcome.... hope you got it right
