Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2m<PJK = m<DJB bec of vertical angles. Substitute the expressions with x and solve for x. Then use x to get the measure of angle PJK Then m<PJK + m<KJD = 180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The two angles I marked are called vertical angles. Vertical angles are congruent. That means they have the same measure. dw:1359930401555:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Since the measure of one angle is 3x  40 and the other one is 2x  10, and the measures are equal, that means 3x  40 = 2x  10 If you solve this equation, you get the value of x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, so it's 3x  40 = 2x  10 +40 +40 3x = 2x + 30 2x 2x x = 30 Is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Good. Now since the measures of one angle is 3x  40, and x = 30, what is the measure of the angle?
