# is this possible? angles and stuff

Problem 5 says "find x" but where is x? There is no "x" in the stated conditions or in the picture given.

Also you say you are concerned about problem "4 and 5" but what you show are problems 5 and 6.

My bad I meant problem D and E from question 5. This is all the information for this problem; x is just a random number used in the equation to find the angles - it's not a specific angle or line or point or anything.

$$\displaystyle \begin{array}{l} 8x + 2 &= 90\\ 6x &= 88\\ x &= 11 \end{array}$$ so $\begin{array}{l} M(\angle 2)&=6(11)+2\\&=68 \end{array}$

$$\displaystyle \begin{array}{l} 8x + 2 &= 90\\ 6x &= 88\\ x &= 11 \end{array}$$ so $\begin{array}{l} M(\angle 2)&=6(11)+2\\&=68 \end{array}$
There was a typo in the second line above.

$$\displaystyle \begin{array}{l} 8x + 2 &= 90\\ 8x &= 88\\ x &= 11 \end{array}$$ so $\begin{array}{l} M(\angle 2)&=6(11)+2\\&=68 \end{array}$

Plato's 1st typo this year?
