    if a =65 then b =5 |dw:1444596672173:dw| now you can find x

    |dw:1444596840551:dw| This might be _too_ tricky, but here's what I did. The way I did it is we have two triangles so we can set up two equations: \[90+25+a = 180\]\[90+x+a=180\] Then I subtract one equation from the other to get: \[25-x=0\]\[25=x\]

    Oh whoops well 180-that answer I gave then haha. Oh well. I feel like I'm contributing to confusion here, so I'll head out.
