    So, what do you know about angles that are shown on facing opposite directions.

    Vertical angles are always congruent

    congruent = the same.

    By the way, wouldn't that make horizontal angles congruent as well? lol.

    <WAZ = <YAX 3X+7 =4X-16

    I believe these types of questions just require you to find the relationship between two things.

    I know to add the 4x and 3x together but that's about it

    Usually, the goal of algebra is to isolate the x-variable.

    So, in order to isolate the x-variable so it is the only thing on one side of the equal sign, what would you have to do to the two constants: -16 and 7?

    3x+7=4x-16 x=23 3(23)+7 69+7 76

    Add -16 and 7 I think

    Angle YAX = Angle WAZ - Vertically Opposite Angles So, 3x + 7 = 4x - 16 3x - 4x = -16 - 7 Then Find the value of x. Once you get x, then substitute it in (3x + 7), which gives you the value of angle YAZ. Hope this clarifies.

    Yes. Now that would leave you with something that looks like x=23 because we started like 3x+7=4x-16 7=x-16 23=x

    Does what @midhun.madhu1987 said make sense?

    yes now you plug in x and find the m<YAX
