    @Lully1212 what two angles can you add that will equal JKL?

    @billj5 you can add HKL and JKH together but that would equal up to 178

    that is correct, so please set up the equation

    value of HKL + value of JKH = 172, plug in the values

    153x + 25x = 172

    (153 + x) + (25 + x) = 172 153 + x + 25 + x = 172

    ok great please simplify this 153 + x + 25 + x = 172

    153 + x + 25 + x = 172 - 25 - 25 128 i dont think i did that right lol

    just combine like terms, lets rearrange first, 153 + 25 + x + x = 172

    perfect so we have 178 + 2x = 172, does this make sense?

    we were just combining like terms on the left hand side

    ok perfect, can you solve this equation 178 + 2x = 172?

    Do i just subtract 172 from 178?

    you can, the first goal is to get the x terms by themselves on one side of the equation, so i would probably subtract 178 from 172

    So that would equal -6

    correct, so we have 2x = -6
