Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hint: with any inscribed quadrilateral in a circle, the opposite angles always add to 180 degrees that means angle R + angle P = 180 (3y+8) + (y) = 180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, i see that but i don't quite understand what to do cause im really confused on how to do this :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you just have to solve 3y+8+y = 180 for y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13y+8+y = 180 4y+8 = 180 ... Combine like terms. 4y+88 = 1808 ... Subtract 8 from both sides. 4y+0 = 172 4y = 172 ... ... ... y = ???
