In the rhombus m angle 1=8y - 6 find the value of y

OpenStudy (anonymous):

1=8y-6 add 6 to both sides 7=8y and divide by 8 to get y alone $y=\frac{7}{8}$

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i think that was supposed to be m(angle 1)=8y-6.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes sorry

OpenStudy (anonymous):

But something else must have been given (measure of another angle, diagonal, something).

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Any other piece of information?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

all sides are the same length

OpenStudy (anonymous):

That's given by the definition of a rhombus...but there has to be some other information about an angle other than angle 1.
