Two lines l and m intersect at O at an angle of 28 degrees. Let A be a point inside the acute angle formed by l and m. Let B and C be the reflections of A over lines l and m, respectively. Find the number of degrees in angle BAC.

Hmmmmm! This is an interesting one...

Here is a picture:

There is a quadrilateral formed in the middle by:

point O, the intersection point of AB and l, point A, and the intersection point of AC and m.

The sum of the interior angles in every quadrilateral = 360º

Look! We know all 3 angles in the quadrilateral except angle BAC.

28º + 90º + m∠BAC + 90º = 360º

m∠BAC = 360º - 90º - 90º - 28º

m∠BAC = 152º
