Remember: Triangle is 180 degrees in total. 1. set up equation 25 + 75 + x = 180 2. Simplify equation 100 + x = 180 3. Isolate x x = 180 - 100 4. Solve for x x = 80 Answer: The third angle is 80 degrees.

1. distribute 1/9 1/2x - 4 = 2/3 - 1/3x 2. combine like terms 1/2x + 1/3x = 2/3 + 4 3. simplify x/2 + 1/3x (find common denominator) 3/6x + 2/6x = 5/6x 2/3 + 4 (find common denominator) 2/3 + 12/3 = 14/3 (simplify) -> 5 4. rewrite simplified equation 5/6x = 14/3 5. divide x = (14/3) / (5/6) 6. flip fraction and multiple x = (14/3) * 6/5 10. simplify and answer x= 28/5
