    my older brother said this is how to solve it and there is the answer is it right? Y+70+60=180° y+130=180 y=180-130 y=50° x+y=90° x+50=90 x=90-50 x=40°

    The given information says that x and y are vertical angles. What do you think we can conclude about the relationship between x and y?

    Vertical angles are congruent. In other words, they have the same measure.

    How do we write the relationship between two angles having the same measure?
