## anonymous 4 years ago https://media.glynlyon.com/g_ima01_2012/3/page28a.gif In the diagram shown, m<1 = x + 16 and m<2 = 3x - 24. Find the value of x.

1. anonymous

Angle 1 and Angle 2 are congruent. So x+16=3x-24

2. anonymous

so 10

3. anonymous

No. $x+16=3x-24$$x-x+16=3x-x-24$$16=2x-24$$16+24=2x-24+24$$40=2x$$\frac{40}{2}=\frac{2x}{2}$$20=x$
