Line MP bisects <LMN, m<LMP=4x+3 and m<LMN=10x-6. Find m<LMN.

I understand how to find adjacent angles and the complement. I don't understand what I am supposed to do? Since it already give you the answer 10x-6, should I solve for x?

  1. since MP bisects <LMN, m<LMP is 1/2 of m<LMN. So,

    m<LMN = 2(m<LMP)
    10x-6 = 2(4x+3)
    Now find x and m<LMN = 10x-6

    the triangle is named ACB and E is the intersection of AT which bisects CB, BR which bisects AC and CS which bisects AB. CS, RB, and AT are all medians. ES, RE and ET equal 3x. I can't figure this out at all. Please explain.
