## 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

Why do you say that x and 146-x are different? Wouldn't that depend on the value of x?

Really? Check your algebra. Also, your equation is incorrect.x+146-x+x=180

x+146=180

x=73
