    z − (w + x) = 360 z + w + x = 360 z + x = 180 z + w = 180

    In an inscribed quadrilateral, opposite angles are supplementary.

    The sum of the measures of the angles of a quadrilateral is: (n - 2)180 = (4 - 2)180 = 2(180) = 360 That means x + y + z + w = 360 Choice B is incorrect because it only adds 3 of the angles, not all 4.

    Yes, you are correct. The answer is C.

    Notice that both choices C and D have angles adding up to 180. In choice C, x and z are opposite angles, so their measures do add up to 180. In choice D, angles z and w are not opposite angles, so we don't know if their measures add up to 180. Besides, there is no mention of angle x in choice D, so D cannot be correct.
