    plz help

    Hi,

    May someone please help me.

    Thank you.

    In the figure, PE bisects angle DPF, AD is perpendicular to CG and ppoints B, P, and F are collinear. If slope angle BPC = 22, find slope angle DPE.

    In the figure, PE bisects angle DPF, AD is perpendicular to CG and ppoints B, P, and F are collinear. If slope angle BPC = 22, find slope angle DPE.

    Note that angle GPF = angle BPC since they are congruent angles. so GPF = 22

    since AD is perpendicular to CG, angle APG = 90

    since PE bisects DPF, we have angle FPE = angle DPE, so we can write,

    APG + DPE = DPE + DPE = 2DPE

    now, A and D are colinear, so the su of the angles on one side of AD add up to 180 degrees, that is,

    angleAPG + angleGPF + 2*angleDPE = 180
    => 90 + 22 + 2DPE = 180
    => 2DPE = 180 - 90 - 22 = 68
    => DPE = 68/2 = 34 degrees
