    here:|dw:1360348431488:dw| you know that B+C=180 right?

    and A=C. Because they are alternate angles. So replacing C with A in B+C=180, we get B+A=180. There, i just proved why those two angles should add up to 180. Do you understand upto here?

    if you write down what we just proved, you get (2x+10) + 132 = 180. Can you solve for x now?

    hmm i think so subtract 132 from 180
