Since it's a quadrilateral, how many degrees in total do the interior angles add up to? :)

@zepdrix Awh, thanks! yeah, I'm just trying to finish up my math so I can graduate. It's all I have left, I just need a lil help! do they add up to 70 degrees? :)

lol no silly! :) In a triangle, the interior angles add to \(180^o\). In a quadrilateral the interior angles add to \(360^o\). Since we have a PARALLELOGRAM, the angles opposite one another will be equal.

i didnt post that sorry my friend is over :/

If you look at the picture, that means that \(65^o=(2x+3)^o\) because those two angles are opposite one another. Ok ok but let's think a little bit differently, since we don't need \(x\). If that angle is 65, and the angle involving \(x\) is also 65, and we determined that a quadrilateral has 360 degrees total. Hmmmm. So those 2 angles \(65^o+65^o=130^o\) How much does that leave over for the other 2 angles? :D

Oh! So what's the opposite? @Ahsher97 Lol, it's all good :)

@zepdrix is the opposite 65 degrees?

since the left angle is opposite? :)

@Ahsher97 Please be nice to askers, regardless of which grade he/she is in. You have been there at one point. Another way to look at this is by using Interior Angles property (i.e 65+5y =180)

dw:1359070814837:dwThis upper angle is also 65 since it's opposite the 65 in a parallelogram. How many degrees does that leave us with for the OTHER two angles if these two are each 65, and a quadrilateral has 360 degrees total? :D

no not at all! @zepdrix ! I think I got it! but idk :) so I did: 18065= 115 and divided by 5

@zepdrix For these type of questions I wouldn't recommend using the sum of interior angles property, because extra steps are required. Instead use the interior angle property.

@tyteen4a03 You're great!! Could I do it like that? :)
