Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1step 1) find the value of y hint: 105+y = 180 step 2) use y to find x hint: x+y+24 = 180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1105 and y are supplementary because they form a straight angle. Which is why 105+y = 180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x+y+24 = 180 because all 3 angles of any triangle always add to 180 degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now its x+75+24=180 so x would equal 81?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1an alternative is to use the exterior angle theorem http://www.mathopenref.com/triangleextangletheorem.html 24 and x are interior angles. They add to 105 which is the exterior angle that isn't touching the interior angles 24+x = 105 solve that for x and you get x = 81
