I'm cracking up

Ok I don't know whats happening but I could have sworn I saw this posted by ahgua last night. Having figured it out I returned to post the answer and I can't find the post for the life of me! Maybe ahgua deleted it, I don't know, but at any rate I redrew a picture of the problem so I could post the answers.

w = 70 x = 90 y = 110 z = 110

Re: I'm cracking up

Well, mortals, where are my compliments? ;-)


Well maybe no one bothered to answer this because it was too easy. :-(

Re: I'm cracking up

Hey! Only I get to call people mortal around here.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Re: I'm cracking up

I am lousy in these kinds of things

Well, i get the same answer, but i was unable to prove that z=y

Please tell me how to prove sad

Re: I'm cracking up

Mikau, Ahgua.....I am sorry, yesterday, when I was
trying to copy the diagram, I saw two same posts
(maybe, I thought I saw) of the diagram, to simplify,
I tried to delete one, and the entire post and got deleted.
I shall be much much more careful in the future,
and thanks for posting it before I requested you!

Nice question, brilliant reasoning.

And excuse my spelling of icosceles, I'm a math freak not a spelling wizard.

It is a really good problem and solution.
