Ok guys...I have another Find Ea. Measure Problem..This time I want to check my answer though...Ok..I have vertical angles...angle 1 on the top is 130 degrees..and 3 (left side) is BISECTED and in angle ACD the equation says x-6 and on the right side angle 4 the equation says 2x-12...ok what I did to solve for x, I wrote 2x-12=50....because the whole angle has to add up to 360 degrees so I solved for x that way and got 31...plugged in I get 50 degrees...I plugged in 31 on the other side..angle 3 and got 25deg. and since it is bisected the total angle is 50 degrees...The whole thing works out...but did I work it out right...or did I cheat...LOL???

If 2x - 12 = 50, then x = 31;
now go away before this turns out into another 2 pages of frustrations...

Nobody thinks you're dumb...it's frustrating when we can't tell
what is being asked...
