    |dw:1352609533315:dw| line BD is an angle bisector, so both of those angles would be congruent

    since angles ABD and DBC are adjacent angles that make up angle ABC, we can say that 2(2x + 22) = 8x

    so 2 * 2x = 4x + 44 = 8x?

    after distributing, you should get 4x + 44 = 8x, yes.

    so then its 44 / 4 = 11 x = 11?

    you didn't show that you subtracted 4x from 8x, but yes. x = 11 :)

    so whats the answer? whats DBC?

    angle DBC = 2x + 22, so just substitute 11 for x in that equation to get your answer
