[/B]
The Attempt at a Solution
What do you do with the exterior angle?
80+130+a+x=360
Homework Statement
Find x[/B]
Homework Equations
a+b+c=180
[/B]
The Attempt at a Solution
So RP=RQ, the base angles are x and (146-x), normally the base angles are the same but in this scenario they are different.
x+146-x+?=180
Thanks a lot man, I got confused but now I understand it, after isolating x I just plug it into the equation.
x: 93/2 = 46.5 degrees
(x-12): 46.5-12= 34.5 degrees
a+b+c=180
46.5+34.5=81
180-81=99 degrees
Yeah but I'm not trying to find one variable, I'm trying to find 3 angles, according to the answers
Obviously I know the answers now but I want to understand the step by step process behind it so I can learn from it.
Homework Statement
The three angles of a scalene triangle are x degrees, (x-12) degrees and (2x+6) degrees. What sizes are the angles?[/B]
Homework Equations
Triangle = a+b+c =180
Scalene = no equal size or angles[/B]
