i know you start by 12x+5 = 8x +17 and get 20x+22

can you draw the picture of how angles 2,4,5 are set up?

you are correct in saying that m < 4 = m < 5 which leads to 12x+5 = 8x +17
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
then 12x+5 = 8x +17 turns into 4x = 12 I think that's what you meant to say? I subtracted 8x from both sides. I also subtracted 5 from both sides

if 4x = 12, then x = ???

3?

yep
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
then use x = 3 to compute the value of m < 4

so 41?

  • jim_thompson5910
yep and angle 2 is equal to that (since angles 2 and 4 are vertical angles, they are congruent)
