    aka "solve for \(w\) " right?

    if that is a straight line on the right, then \(2x+w=180\)

    so you can solve for \(w\) with no \(y\) in it , just \[w=180-2x\]

    The answer to this is w=2x+2y-180

    we got a bunch of stuff we know for example \[x+y+k=180\]

    \[w+2k=180\]

    we can solve \[w+2k=180\] for \(k\) and get \[w=180-2k\]then plug that in to the first one

    oops that is wrong, i meant "solve for \(k\)"

    \[k=\frac{180-w}{2}\]

    plug that in h ere \[x+y+k=180\]

    \[x+y+\frac{180-w}{2}=180\] then solve that for \(w\)

    it is not that hard takes three steps at the most

    multiply by 2 get \[2x+2y+180-w=360\]

    add \(w\) subtract \(360\) get \[2x+2y-180=w\]

    so another method would be K=(180-x-y) w+k+k=180 w=180-2k w=180-2(180-x-y) w=180-360+2x+2y w=2x+2y-180
