Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, 360. notice that your circle is divided into 3 pieces and if you add up the 3 pieces you should get 360 can you write down the "sum" ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So \[ (8x+10) + (6x) + (10x+10)\]

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes and that must equal 360 \[ (8x+10) + (6x) + (10x+10) = 360 \] because they represent the whole circle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1P.S i just plugged it in :)

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, that is one way to do the problem. you could also add up the x's 8x+6x+10x= 24x and 10+10 = 0 so it simplifies to 24x= 360 x= 360/24 = 15

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you get the same number for each arc you have an equilateral triangle. if 2 out of the 3 are the same, it's isosceles if all 3 are different , it's scalene

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got 110, 90,160 and oops i meant scalene

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and the actual angles of the triangle are 55, 45 and 80 yes, definitely scalene
