Am I confused? If the figure is supposed to be a rectangle, then all of the triangles are isosceles. So 2a+89=180 and 2b+91=180. a>b. Am I missing something that is making this hard?

We don't know that the angles at the corners are right angles.

Geometry Problem
If its an arbitrary quadrilateral then a>b is not necessarily true. Start drawing nonrectangular cases.
