(2x+24) degrees on the top of the lines that form a X

and on the other side of the angle is 142 Degrees..

I know you have to have 180 degrees but those x's confuse me. I have this figure out and narrowed down to two answers.... 118 or 59 so if you take the 59 and times by 2 you get 118 and then at the 24 you get 142 to match the other identical side HELP!!

**Steve**, Monday, November 28, 2011 at 1:31pmWhat do you mean by "the other side"?

If you mean the angle opposite 2x+24, then they are the same:

2x+24 = 142

x = 59

and the angle is 142 degrees

__________________

If you mean the adjacent angle, then the two angles make a straight line, and

2x+24 + 142 = 180

x = 7

and the angle is 38 degrees
