 Question 475547: Geometric Problems: When two lines cross, the opposite angles are called vertical angles. Vertical angles have equal measures. Use an equation to determine the measure of the vertical angles if one equals 3x + 38 and the other is 5x + 20. Found 2 solutions by stanbon, MathLover1:Answer by stanbon(57361)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!determine the measure of the vertical angles if one equals 3x + 38 and the other is 5x + 20. ---- Solve: 3x+38 = 5x+20 2x = 18 x = 9 --- 3x + 38 = 27+38 = 65 degrees 5x+20 = 5*9+20 = 45+20 = 65 degrees ============================================= Cheers, Stan H. Answer by MathLover1(6634)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! the measure of the vertical angles if one equals and the other is is: the measure of the angle the measure of the angle
