HElp me Out? 1. What is the degree measure of angle A? __________ degrees http://www.flickr.com/photos/63839927@N04/8219196862/in/photostream/lightbox/ 2. What did you use to find the measure of angle A? (1 point) A. 60 + x + A = 180 B. 180 – 150 = A C. Interior angles are equal D. Vertical angles are equal Have to copy and paste the whole link.

    A should equal 60, intersection and all that

    I'd go with the interior angle answer,...if I remember correctly, it means the same thing as saying " opposit angles are equal"

    meaning that A= 60 because it is an angle of intersecting lines, aka A=60 because they are vertical angles

    Ohh..so did you just solve those equations then subtracted it?? I'm trying to understand I'm just not good with Geometry.

    What I did was make an inference based off of vertical angle theorem. If there are two lines that intersect, then they will create four angles. Each angle has an opposing angle, vertical from its perspective. The two opposite or vertical angles are equal

    Jazy seems to have a more current handle on geometry than me, so correct me if any of that is innacurate

    Can I have help with finding the degree of x? and Which of the following can you use to find the degree measure of angle x? 180 – (60 + A) = x 150 – 60 = x x = 60 + A x = 150 – 50 180 – 90 = x These are my last questions that I need help with.

    let's see, it might be 90...because y=30, since 180-150=30...then 60+30=90...triangles must have angles that sum to 180...180-90=90

    \[180=\alpha+\beta +\gamma\] each symbol represents an interior (meaning inside of) angle of a triangle
