**Reiny**, Friday, February 1, 2013 at 2:02pmvery similar to the one I did for you yesterday.

draw the two triangles and fill in the information.

5x + 7y = 75 ---- equation #1

In triangle AC

angle C = 180 - 75 - 2x - 9y

= 105 - 2x - 9y

3x+4y = 105 - 2x - 9y

5x + 13y = 105 --- #2

subtract #2 - #1

6y = 30

y = 5

back into #1

5x + 35 = 75

5x = 40

x=8

so if x=8 and y=5

**angle R = 3x+4y = 24+20 = 44°**

check: 5x + 7y should be 75

5(8) + 7(5) = 75 , yeahhh
