I wasn't sure, but I tried under that assumption.

oh the answer is 84 by the way. This isn't what I got

i dont think those lines could be parallel

that is what I figured as well. so I attempted by just assuming that N,P and R all lie on one line. But then I can't figure out if there is a solution.

I have to give up! If someone figures it out please post it. I really don't know.

The question seems to be missing something. Is there a length somewhere? Or maybe it's cylic? It's brings me to a wild goose chase....

What's the answer? 84? if it's 84 then its parallel...

@Shadowy, your logic appears to be flawed: 2(42) + 2x = 180? How?
 2 years ago

Shadowys Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Well,since \(\Delta \)MPN is an isosceles triangle, angle MPN=angle MNP, so at the point P, y=42, 2y+2x=180.

Hero Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Bro, there's no evidence that suggests MPN is isosceles

If and only if the MQ and NP is parallel, then as shown above, QM=MP=MN. And the answer happens to be 84. So this assumption is right.
