Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since I see an x in the figure, I'll assume the question is "what is the measure of the angle labeled x?"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, here it is: The streets are parallel. Do you know about alternate interior angles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0maybe... I'll be honest, we never learned how to do this. and yes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Using parallel lines and a transversal, and alternate interior angles, what is the measure of angle a? dw:1438109253345:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the relationship between angles a and b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great. a and b are a linear pair. They are supplementary, so a + b = 180, and a = 132, so b = 148. Good.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so adding 90 and 48? gives me 42

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, subtracting 48 from 90 gives you x = 42. 90 + x + 48 = 180 x + 48 = 90 x = 90  48 < subtract 48 from 90 x = 42 You are correct.
