I got angle NMO = 61 same method as above, but correction for LMO = x + 32 Therefore, angle LMO = angle NMO angle NMO = angle LMN - angle LMO angle NMO = 5x - 23 - (x + 32) angle NMO = 5x - 23 - x - 32 angle NMO = 4x - 55 angle LMO = angle NMO x + 32 = 4x - 55 3x = 87 x = 29 ...

Thank you. That's much better. If I am understanding your description, A line that bisects an angle divides it into two congruent parts. Therefore, angle LMO = angle NMO angle NMO = angle LMN - angle LMO angle NMO = 5x - 23 - (x + 3) angle NMO = 5x - 23 - x - 3 angle NMO...
