The sum of the interior angles of any triangle is 180 degrees. So what is the measure of angle O?

Does this triangle contain an obtuse angle? A right angle? Are any of the angle measures equal?

Well, angle EBA, angle EBD, and angle DBC are all part of a straight angle. So angle EBA + angle EBD + angle DBC = 180 degrees. That will give you x. So now you know two angles of triangle BCD. How do you find the third angle of this?

Give this one another try. It's a definition. ASA means angle-side-angle. Angles EBA and DBC are equal, sides AB and CB are equal, so we would need to know what more to prove these congruent by ASA?

m<A stands for the "measure of angle A."

This is the basic construction for an angle bisector...

Construction: Bisect Angle
