    What do we know about the angles in a parallelogram ? How are they related?

    There equal?

    Well, each angle has a corresponding angle on the opposite side, which is equal. |dw:1357250638700:dw| So if the lower right angle is A = 30 + B then it would look like..

    is it 30+B?

    I think that is what you indicated in the question.

    That angle A is 30 more than Angle B

    What I labeled in the diagram as "B" and "30 + B" are the angle measurements for each angle. Last question is, what do the angle measurements add up to in a parallelogram ?

    360?

    Yes, exactly. We can solve for B by adding up all the angles: 30 + B + B + 30 + B + B = 360

    Solve for B and what do we get for the measure of angle B ?

    how do I do that?

    30 + 30 is 60, and B + B + B + B = 4B so we have 60 + 4B = 360

    now do you subtract 60 from 360?

    Yes, that leaves 4B = 300

    and then you divide by 4?

    B = 75 degrees So we know that B = 75 degrees, and based on the parallelogram, would you agree that B = D ?

    yes?

    Then our conclusion is that the measure of angle D is 75 degrees :)
