In [tex] \bigtriangleup ABC , AB = BC[/tex] and [tex]CD[/tex] bisects angle C.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If [tex]y = \frac{1}{3}x[/tex] then z = ....

--------------------------------------------

Ok. I've tried to make a bunch of substitutions for each of the angles and I can't seem to solve any for z.

I have found these two equations:

[tex] y + z + c = 180[/tex]

and

[tex] x + z + \frac{c}{2} = 180[/tex]

I know I can make substitutions/variants of these, but I still am stuck.

Any help is appreciated.
