I'm a bit confused on how to do this problem. What is angle 1 in this parallelogram? Diagram will be in the comments. Options: o 20 degrees o 60 degrees o 80 degrees o 100 degrees I tried working out the problem, but couldn't find the right answer. I believe that the slope = 10. Any help?

    I think I made it a little more slanted then it really is.

    3m+5m+20=180 8m+20=180 8m=160 m=80

    M=20 Plug that back in and M<1 =80

    Why does m equal 20?

    Because when you set 3m+20+50=180 and you simplify you get m=20

    Here's what I did: 5m + 3m + 20 = 180 8m + 20 = 180 Subtract 20 on both sides 8m = 160 Divide 8 on both sides m = 80 I understand that...
