    The second problem on this page. The correct answers are
    x=40
    m<1=60
    m<2=50
    m<3=120
    m<4=30

    Right? The answer to the top question is x=22.

    But when I do the step at the bottom to come up with the new browser address, it's wrong. Could someone tell me where I went wrong? This is aggravating.

    Once you get all of your answers, you are supposed to add the top three answers (in value) together, which will give you 230, and then subtract the sum of the lowest three answers. (92) You should end up with 138. It then says to multiply this by the number of degrees in a circle. (360.) The answer I came up with is 49680, but when I plug that in to the address, it doesn't work. Can someone just look over my answers and tell me if I got one wrong?

    Actually, angle 2 is 60, isn't it? Regardless, one of my answers must still be incorrect, because my new answer isn't opening the page either.
    (120+60+60)-(40+30+22)=148
    Ans*360
    53280
    But it still is incorrect somewhere, apparently. :/

    m2 is 60 but the " correct answers" shows it as 50 so there is an error in the summation question
