OpenStudy (radar):

Are the opposite sides equal in a parallelogram? so wouldn't side LM = 40 M just like side JK

OpenStudy (bbb911):

is that the answer?

OpenStudy (radar):

If the opposite sides are equal yes. I am going to google parallelogram and verify.

OpenStudy (bbb911):

ok

OpenStudy (radar):

Yes they are equal according to wikipedia. Lets look at the No. 7

OpenStudy (bbb911):

okay :)

OpenStudy (radar):

Are those two angles at L 56 and 49 degrees, they are blurred and I can't make them out.

OpenStudy (bbb911):

on number 5?

OpenStudy (radar):

On the drawing of the parallelogram the first one you posted.

OpenStudy (bbb911):

yes i did number 5 already but i need 6 and 7 because they go together. so its 56 and 69

OpenStudy (radar):

ok i'm thinking

OpenStudy (bbb911):

kk :)

OpenStudy (radar):

angle KJM wil equzl angle KLM and that is 56+69 degrees. Isn't that what No. 6 wants?

OpenStudy (bbb911):

i think so is that how were find <KJM

OpenStudy (radar):

Yes, because opposite angles are equal. Just add 56 and 69 for answer to KJM

OpenStudy (bbb911):

and the answer should be 125 degrees rite?

OpenStudy (radar):

yes. I am having trble figuring angle JKL. What is the sum of the angles in a parallelogram?

OpenStudy (bbb911):

That is were im stupped :(

OpenStudy (radar):

OK, the two angles at J and L or 125 degrees each so they add up to 250, now we subtract 250 from the total sum which I believe to be 360 that would leave 110 degrees left for angles JKL plus JML, that would they would be equal to 55 degrees each

OpenStudy (bbb911):

oh i get it now thank you sooo much

OpenStudy (radar):

I am gonna check to see if the sum of all the angles in a parallelogram add up to 360 degrees. Google is my friend.

OpenStudy (bbb911):

hehe me 2 :3

OpenStudy (radar):

yes, there are 360 degrees in a parallelogram

OpenStudy (bbb911):

yay its correct :3

OpenStudy (radar):

Good luck with your studies, I'm gonna read my book.

OpenStudy (bbb911):

hehe thank you so much
