OPQRSTUVWX is a regular decagon. A rotation of

degrees about U maps X to R. Given
, find

Two lines
and m intersect at O at an angle of
. Let A be a point inside the acute angle formed by
and m. Let B and C be the reflections of A in lines
and m, respectively. Find the number of degrees in
.

Equilateral triangle ABC has centroid G. Triangle A'B'C' is the image of triangle ABC upon a dilation with center G and scale factor -2/3. Let K be the area of the region that is within both triangles. Find K/[ABC].

I see you have graph paper.
