## AnaheimNena714 I NEED HELP ASAP WITH SOME QUESTIONS PLEASE ANYONE!!!!!! I NEED SOMEONE TO HELP ME ITS DUE SOON :( DONT WANA FALL BEHIND AGAIN one year ago one year ago

1. AnaheimNena714

6. Are the two triangles similar? How do you know?

2. AnaheimNena714

3. completeidiot

opposite angles are _____

i think they intersect at one point.

5. completeidiot

what you need to know in order to solve this problem property of opposite angles sum of interior angles are equal to 180 degrees

6. AnaheimNena714

Yes i know you need to know that but how do i solve and explain how i solve it?

7. AnaheimNena714

nobody?:(

8. completeidiot

well if you knew those things and the definition of similar triangles then you could just do it yourself...

9. completeidiot
10. AnaheimNena714

but i dont know how to explain it. i tried but i got to a point where i didnt know what to do :(

11. completeidiot

just answer my questions then the property of opposite angles are that they are?

12. completeidiot

opposite angles are equal to each other |dw:1361038190194:dw|

13. completeidiot

we know that H and K are equal to each other ( both are labelled as 42 degrees)

14. AnaheimNena714

yea i thought they were equal like that but i still need more proof

15. completeidiot

now similar triangles have the same shape (all 3 angles are the same) but can have different sizes

16. completeidiot

now all you need to prove is that J and G are equal to each other and you use the fact that interior angles are equal to 180 degrees

17. AnaheimNena714

yea but there isnt a 90 degree angle to make it easier

18. completeidiot

doesnt matter

19. completeidiot

just consider the opposite angles of x degrees

20. completeidiot

if opposite angles are " x" degrees, then angle J and G must be equal to what?

21. AnaheimNena714

42?

22. AnaheimNena714

@completeidiot

23. completeidiot

no....

24. completeidiot

if i gave you this triangle|dw:1361039157764:dw| then what is y in terms of x

25. AnaheimNena714

opposite angle?
