line BD bisects angle ABC. Solve for X and find the measures of angle ABC.

angle ABD= 5X, angle DBC= 3X + 10

I don't really understand this question so can someone please help me solve this and explain to me how they solved it/ show the steps of how to solve this question. Thanks :)

  2. If a line bisects an angle, it means that the line halves the angle into two equal angles.

    Therefore, angle ABD equals angle DBC.

    Hopefully this helps. If you still need further assistance, you can reply to this thread. Good luck!
