    Good job! Now you can set up an equation. |dw:1380240985189:dw| Does the equation make sense?

    Alright, I'll explain it in detail at the end. Anyway, combine like terms. 90 + (-10) = ? 4x + x = ?

    so 90+-10=80 5x

    subtract 80 from 180 which would be 5x=100 x=20

    Anyway, the reason why the equation make sense is because if you plug x into the angles: |dw:1380241423965:dw|
