Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which ones do you need help with?

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry about that, I got kicked out :/ @Mertsj I need help with any one of the questions that don't have an answer highlighted in yellow. Any of the ones that do I need them to be checked. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So number 2. It is an isosceles triangle. Do you know what an isosceles triangle is?

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, a isosceles triangle is a triangle that has two equal sides and two equal angels.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is very good. So what is the sum of all the angles of a triangle?

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The sum of all the angles of a triangle is 180 degrees.

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So why can't you get number 2?

Mertsj
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Angle B is 35, angle C is 35 so you should be able to find angle A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ohh, I'm sorry, I forgot to do that one, I do know how to do that one sorry! D:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So # 3. There is a theorem that says that the exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the two remote interior angles. Do you know what that means? Do you know what an exterior angle of a triangle is?

Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So do you need help or not?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I do I'm sorry, my computer keeps freezing.

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't really understand that theorem. @Mertsj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I need all of the questions checked that have answers checked and then all of the questions that don't have yellow highlights I need help figuring out

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Your 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 ?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If that is too cryptic, I am saying that angle 4 plus angle 2 add up to 180 degrees

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for question 6 remember this: dw:1362333669480:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry, I didn't get a notification For #3, is Angle 2 10?

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Actually, it'd be 74. @phi

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which means Angle 1 is 106?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for question 3, you know angle 3 (64) and you know angle 2 (74) angles 1,2 and 3 add to 180

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ohh okay, so Angle 1 is 42?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2question 7 is another "angles add upto 180 in a triangle)

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm not sure how to solve that one :/

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Did you get 6 ? Vertical angles are =

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are the angles opposite each other when two lines cross

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, so if you know angle 4 you know angle 2

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, but I can't seem to get the right answer for it. None of the answers would add up to 180

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what is angle 2 ? what is angle 3 ?

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Angle 3 is 54, but I don't know what Angle 2 is, but it's the same as Angle 4

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Didn't you answer question 5 ?

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes but is that the right answer?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can check: the 3 angles in the triangle add up to 180

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but up above I told you Your yellow answers (btw use blue next time, I could not read yellow) are correct

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay 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?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes. And that process of reasoning you went through is really what is important to learn. Geometry is just a way to set up problems that get you to think that way.

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'll do some of the practice questions they have for me after I'm done my assignments. :D

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Could you help me with the questions on Page 5 and the last page?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I just notice question 18 looks wrong.

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Did I mix up Alternate Exterior Angles?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2angle 5 and angle 8 are vertical angles. The fancy names refer to angles on the 2 different parallel lines (if that makes sense)

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So would Angle 1 be the correct answer?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes. alternate means "other side of the transversal" and exterior means outside the 2 parallel lines.

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ohh okay, I got mixed up because this is a different angle of the the diagram than I am used to :/

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for 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

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2using corresponding angles and knowing vertical angles are equal, you can figure out everything (except the goofy names they give the different angle pairs)

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Does that mean Angle 6 and 7 are 140?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, 6 and 7 are vertical. I draw a narrow x to remind me, because the angles look = dw:1362337901794:dw

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's a good idea, I'll remembe that

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well 3x = 6 would be 3x/3 = 6/3 right?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2how do you get from 3x+5=11 to 3x = 6

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ohh you're right, that should be subtraction >.<

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2they are asking how you get from the first statement to the middle statement I would subtract 5 ( or add 5 which makes their reasons a little goofy)

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And then 26 would be E instead

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's kinda confusing because it seems like they skipped a step

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you mean for 3x+5=11 given 3x = 6 subtraction property x = 2 division what step is missing ?

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The division property

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you could "show the work" 3x+5 = 11 3x +55 = 115 subtract 5 3x = 6 simplify 3x/3 = 6/3 divide by 3 x = 2 simplify

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1True, with these I think I'll do the problem that way I know what's missing

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for 27, it looks like addition property of angles. You can get that one by process of elimination.... it's the only reason that mentions angles.

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For 28, I think it's C

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No that's not right

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because 29 needs to be C

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you are looking for the reason for changing M<XYZ into 4n6

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think 28 is Substitution

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2another rule out all the add and subtract properties which do not fit. you are left with substitution, which makes sense. you are substituting 4n6 for M<XYZ

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So now we have Addition, Subtraction, and Division left. 29 would be Addition?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2how do you get from 4n6=2n+46 to 2n 6= 46

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1...it'd be subtraction wouldn't it? They subtracted 2n from 4n?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If you have 2n's on the right side, you do you make it no n"s ?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you have 2 apples and you take away 2 apples , how many apples do you have left ?

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No apples left

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and we call that ADD? SUBTRACT ? DIVIDE?

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Subtracting

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes they subtracted 2n from both sides on the right 2n  2n is 0 on the left 4n  2n is 2n (4 apples take away 2 apples leaves 2 apples... thinking apples instead of a letter n might make this seem more obvious)

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yea, I'll practice these more too

LifeIsADangerousGame
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Would that be C? Addition?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes they added +6 to both sides 2n6=46 becomes 2n  6+ 6 = 46+6 addition property 2n = 52 simplify

LifeIsADangerousGame

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And then finally 31 is E :D

phi
