Given: triangle ABC ~ triangle PQR, m<A = 75 degrees, m<P = (5x + 7y) degrees, m<R = (3x + 4y) degrees, and m<B =( 2x + 9y) degrees. FInd m<R.

Thanks

    very 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
