non-parallel

how much do  non-parallel angles equal? like do the angles still equal 180?

Here is what the question says

If AB | CD:

6. What is the measure of angle 3 in degrees if angle 1 = 125?
A 26o
B 49o
C 32o
D 78o
E 42o
F 55o

(The one slash line means non-parallel)

Re: non-parallel

Hi;

I think so.

Hi zee-f;

You can use the degree from the top of the page.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: non-parallel

hi zee-f,

You will have to give us a diagram.  Without it, angle 1 and angle 3 could be anything.

I've made a guess below.

Re: non-parallel

Hey guys,

They didn't give me any diagram that is all what the question said,  that is why am confused. I got all the questions correct except for the questions about that all it said is if AB | CD which means if AB isn't parallel to CD then it asked questions neutral

Re: non-parallel

hey again I asked my teacher she said it was a typo. So it's  AB || CD. Now I know how to solve the problem.

Re: non-parallel

I got a full lesson complete 10/10 smile

here is what I answered for that question I was confused on:

6- F 55°
6. What is the measure of angle 3 in degrees if angle 1 = 125°?
A 26°
B 49°
C 32°
D 78°
E 42°
F 55°

7-B 168°
7. What is the measure of angle 8 in degrees if angle 7 = 12°?
A 15°
B 168°
C 98°
D 174°
E 101°
