    Do you know to what number of degrees a pentagon's angles add up to?

    Nope, that's a square. It adds to 540. Now try set up an equation by summing the angles given to 540.

    Note: All the angles are given. Some are just in terms of x

    (2x+10) ? 140 ? (2x) ? 112 = 540

    540 - 350 (All angles without variables added) = 190 Now just find x =D

    you were on the right path. (2x+10) + 148 + (2x) + 112 = 540 Now just solve for x.

    it should be 90 + (2x+10) + 148 + (2x) + 112 = 540 just add on the 90 degree angle

    The little square or angle in the corner is the 90 degree

    90 + (2x+10) + 148 + (2x) + 112 = 540 350 + (2x+10) + (2x) =540
