I'm stuck on this question please help.
"GK bisects angle FGH".
If angle FGK=8v-2 and angle KGH=3v+3,find angle
FGH.
PLEASE HELP ME

  • geometry -

    Well, doesn't it say that they are equal ?? What does "bisect" mean ?

    8v-2 = 3v+3
    5v = 5
    v=1

    so 8v-2 = 6
    and 3v+3 = 6

    so I guess the big angle is 12
