Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0given that \(m\angle Q=42^{\circ}\), and the line NQ bisects \(\angle MNP\), and the line PQ bisects \(\angle MPR\) Find \(m\angle M\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I wasn't sure, but I tried under that assumption.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh the answer is 84 by the way. This isn't what I got

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yup just tried again. is anyone actually trying this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont think those lines could be parallel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have to give up! If someone figures it out please post it. I really don't know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 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....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What's the answer? 84? if it's 84 then its parallel...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how did you work that out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Shadowy, your logic appears to be flawed: 2(42) + 2x = 180? How?

Shadowys

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If 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.
