Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this is what is missing dw:1374652805954:dw Angle OEA and Angle ODA are both 90 so they sum to 180. by angle sum of a quadrilateral EAD + EOD = 180 or are supplementary

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the quadrilateral is DOEA so EAD + EOD = 360  180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the fact they are perpendicular are given to you in the question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And that makes EAD + EOD = 180, as Krishnadas posted.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yep... the initial statement about opposite sides being supplementary makes no sense. by if you show the right angles on the perpendiculars then it makes it easy to understand that EAD and EOD are supplementary
