Is the question what is the measure of x?
i have no clue....
That is all the question states? The problem does not ask a question.
exactly.... and yes that's the full question
Since I see an x in the figure, I'll assume the question is "what is the measure of the angle labeled x?"
Ok, here it is: The streets are parallel. Do you know about alternate interior angles?
maybe... I'll be honest, we never learned how to do this. and yes.
Using parallel lines and a transversal, and alternate interior angles, what is the measure of angle a? |dw:1438109253345:dw|
it would be 132
Yes. Let's write that. |dw:1438109440040:dw|
Using the figure above, can you find the measure of angle b?
What is the relationship between angles a and b?
Great. a and b are a linear pair. They are supplementary, so a + b = 180, and a = 132, so b = 148. Good.
Now can you find the measure of the angle labeled x?
so adding 90 and 48? gives me 42
Actually, 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.
oh then i did it the longer way but it still works. thank you!
