|dw:1358754147786:dw| a an b form a vertical angle pair. vertical angles are equal, so a=b in your case, 2x+24 =142 can you find x from here ?

3. hba

You would have to subtract 24 from both sides and then divide by 2

4. Rosy95

2x+24=142 2x=118 Divide 2 from both sides and you get x=??

5. barnoldwrl
