Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hey Kate :) Since A is the first angle in triangle ABC, and X is the first angle in triangle XYZ, and given that the triangles are `congruent`, this tells us that angle A is equivalent to angle X. Therefore \(\large\rm 50=4x+8\) Solve for x! :) I don't think it quite works out to 13.67.
