1. ## Need help

Hi,

I do not understand what I need to do with problem.

The question is:

Complete each statement with < or >.

slope angle 1 __________ slope angle 5

Thank you for the help.

1) I can't see the diagram very clearly
2) What statements?

What do you mean by "slope?" Do you simply mean is angle 1 greater than or less than angle 5? If so, then note that angle 2 = 180 (degrees) - angle 1 because they are supplimentary angles. Note also that angle 2 = 180 - (angle 3 + angle 5) since the sum of all the angles in a triangle is 180.

Thus:
180 - angle 1 = 180 - (angle 3 + angle 5)

Or, after some rearranging:
angle 1 = angle 5 + angle 3

Since angle 3 has a value greater than 0, angle 1 > angle 5.
