A circle is divided into four segments from the center of the circle. One segment is x degree and each of the other three segments increases by 20 degree from the previous segment. What is the value of the largest segment?

a. 60 degree
b. 80 degree
c. 100 degree
d. 120 degree
e. 140 degree

• math -

x+(x+20)+(x+40)+(x+60) = 360
so, what is x+60?

• math -

50+60=110

• math -

50+60 = 110, but where do you get the 50?
