the circles are supposed to mean degrees i just fail at drawing

3. theEric

Oh, I see! Drawing is good enough! So, is there anything significant about where your two angle values are at? That's usually a good question to start with, and you learn more and more about what's significant as you go on. What MEANS something, you know? So, do you see anything meaningful there?

4. icalibear

Well they both represent angles? I don't know :(

5. icalibear

I just don't know how to solve these or how much the figure will measure

6. theEric

Haha, that's good, sort of. Now you know you're learning. Anytime you see two lines intersecting, opposite angles are equal!

7. theEric

That's really the key to all this, and just one thing more to learn.

so its asking me how to make the equation equal 149?

9. theEric

Yup! :)

10. icalibear

12. theEric

Sorry for the delay! That answer is what I got too.

13. icalibear

Okay. Can you help me with my other question too please?

14. theEric

Yeah, is it posted already? Or would you like to ask it here?
