    Your yellow answers (btw use blue next time, I could not read yellow) are correct for question 3, you should think "If I know 2 angles of the triangle, I can figure out the 3rd" use the idea that a straight line is 180ª to find that 2nd angle. Can you do that ?

    Okay yes, that answer is correct. So angle 4 is 64 degrees. Ohh, all my yellow answers are correct? Sorry I didn't understand that D: I'll do Blue next time, thanks. So if Angle 4 is 64 degrees then Angle 2 is 64 degrees. So if Angle 2 is 64 degrees and Angle 3 is 54, then Angle 1 is 62 degrees?

    for question 22 and 23, the idea is the angles on the "right side parallel line" are equal to their corresponding angles on the left side parallel line. so 6 matches (corresponds) with 2
