It is asking me to find m and n. I have the answer for it but not all the steps for it. The answer should m=60 and n=12

I think this is what I need to do 6m-120, but right after that I get confused, like how am I supposed to find m and n, would it be 6m-120=180

- anonymous

Keeping in mind that the angle of a straight line always equals 180 so i'm a little confused. Is the m-120 for just that one angle? Or for both?

|did you look at that one site I showed you previously on your previous post?
the two angles with 2m and 4m-120 has measurements are congruent since they are corresponding angles

- freckles

which means 2m=4m-120

- anonymous

Yes I did, but it only talked about supplementary angles. oh okay, wait so 2m=4m-120

- freckles

it also talked about congruent angles

- freckles

and it talked about three kinds of congruent angles

- freckles

the angles I mentioned earlier were corresponding angles

- freckles

now |dw:1443728005251:dw|
the sum of these circled angles is 180 deg

- anonymous

Oh okay, so I got 60. But now to get 5n, aren't vertical angles equal to 180, so 5n+4m=120 ? So 5n+ 4(60)-120=180

- freckles

4m-120+5n=180

- freckles

yes

- freckles

vertical angles equal 180

- freckles

so you got m is 60 right?

- freckles

replace m with 60 then
4(60)-120+5n=180 and now solve for n

- anonymous

Yes. So n=12

- freckles

right since
you have
240-120+5n=180
120+5n=180
5n=60
n=12
great

Thank you very much for your help!

np
on that site they mentioned all the angles that are congruent when you have some picture like this:
|dw:1443728172278:dw|

- freckles

congruent means they have the same degree measurement

- freckles

hey also one more important thing

- anonymous

yes? Sorry I was looking at other things in that one site you gave me

- freckles

I confused myself earlier

- freckles

and I guess I forgot what vertical angles were

- freckles

but vertical angles are the same not supplementary

- anonymous

Yeah sorry I got confused, but yes.

- freckles

so hmm... this means n will be different

- freckles

|dw:1443728561704:dw|

\[2m=4m-120 \\ -2m=-120 \\ m=60 \\ 4m-120=5n \\ 4(60)-120=5n \\ 240-120=5n \\ 120=5n \\ n=24\]

- anonymous

well it wouldn't be because they are still the same, I just said that it would be 180 but what I meant is that vertical angles are the same :)

- freckles

but you said n is 12... right?
so let me ask ...
