Well this all the depends on what question is being asked.

6. antoni7

angle abc o.O ?

7. leroysgurl15

yah the question is asking to find the measurement of angle <ABC

8. ♪Chibiterasu

Ah, well I don't exactly remember this stuff from last year, sorry Dx

9. antoni7

can you write the full question please ?

10. hartnn

do you know what are vertically opposite angles ?

11. leroysgurl15

3x-14=2x+10 -2x -2x 1x-14 = 10 +14 +14 1x=24 ________ 1 1 x=24

12. hartnn

wow! you nailed it ! :) now <ABC is just 3x-14 = 3(24) -14 =...?

13. leroysgurl15

so all i do is times it

14. leroysgurl15

so it would be 90

15. hartnn

3(24) -14 is not 90 .... did u get how its 3(24)-14 ??

16. hartnn

because <ABC is 3x-14 and x=24

17. leroysgurl15

3(24)=72

18. hartnn

yup, 72-14 =... ?

19. leroysgurl15

58
