## anonymous one year ago Triangle ABC is congruent to triangle XYZ. Angle A measures 50 degrees angle B measure (2x+40) degrees and angle X measures (4x+8) degrees Find the value of x. I got 13.67

Hey 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.

14.5?

Subtract 8,|dw:1438786120187:dw|

Then divide by 4 to isolate your variable x.
