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?
 2 years ago

AriPotta Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
after distributing, you should get 4x + 44 = 8x, yes.

AriPotta Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now what do you do?
 2 years ago

Hbadgerdontcare Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so then its 44 / 4 = 11 x = 11?
 2 years ago

AriPotta Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you didn't show that you subtracted 4x from 8x, but yes. x = 11 :)

so whats the answer? whats DBC?
 2 years ago

AriPotta Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
angle DBC = 2x + 22, so just substitute 11 for x in that equation to get your answer
