## Kagome_gurl8 2 years ago Find the value of x. The diagram is not draw drawn to scale.

1. Kagome_gurl8

2. zaynahf

First, can you classify what shape this is?

3. Kagome_gurl8

parallogram?

4. zaynahf

Hmm, not quite. A parallelogram has 4 sides, which are parallel

5. Kagome_gurl8

Oh, thats what i've been counting it as. Maybe thats why i've been getting it wrong...

6. zaynahf

Maybe xD So do you know what shape has 5 sides?

7. Kagome_gurl8

pentagon

8. zaynahf

Yep, so do you know how much the interior angles measure of a pentagon? (n-2)(180)

9. Kagome_gurl8

Not really, i'm really bad a geometry

10. zaynahf

take the number of sides, subtract 2, and then multiply that by 180= that is the measure of the interior angles

11. Kagome_gurl8

for the whole question i ended up with 90, is that correct?

12. zaynahf

For what x equals?

13. Kagome_gurl8

yes

14. zaynahf

Just a sec..

15. zaynahf

Perfect!

16. Kagome_gurl8

really!?!?

17. zaynahf

Yeah! Its what i got at least, unless i did it wrong too o_o Plug in 90 for x, and add up all the angles and make sure you get 540
