if measure of angle SUT=3x+6 and measure of angle RUS=5x-4, find measure of angle SUT

• geometry -

d diagram here is very important
4rm my assummed diagram i drew, SUT is part of RUS ie u can get angle sut 4rm angle rus
==>5x-4-(3x+6)
5x-4-3x-6
2x-10
to form an equation equate to zero
2x-10=0
2x=10
x=5

Do they add up to a right angle? A straight line?
