Hii!

I'm a bit stuck on this problem which I have. It tells us to find the angle marked x . I tried my best to copy this diagram into paint, so it seems close to the real drawing to me.

We have a square, two equilateral triangles and an isosceles triangle. Focus on working out the largest angle in the isosceles triangle. You can do this using the facts that:

-Angles at a point sum

-Angles in an equilateral triangle are all

-Angles in a square are all

Once you've worked out the largest angle in the isosceles triangle, use the facts that the**other**two angles in the triangle are equal and that all angles in any triangle sum . - Nov 17th 2011, 01:14 AMProve ItRe: Grade 8 Geometry
