not sure if it's the notation that is throwing me off?

are the lines QM and RN parallel by any chance?

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

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

yup just tried again. is anyone actually trying this?

i dont think those lines could be parallel

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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...

how did you work that out?

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

ShadowysBest 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.

HeroBest 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.
