What would the measures of angles showing the following figures be? (13x+5) degrees and (7x+29) degrees.
The answer options would be 57, 60, 52, or 28 degrees, but how do you solve and write the solution?
Since the angles are vertical (I assume), then 13x+5=7x+29. Solve this by subtracting 7x from both sides:
Substituting x=4 into each angle you get
13(4)+5 = 57
7(4)+29 = 57
