^ZAQ is congruent to ^XSW. If the sum of the measure of ^Z and ^Q is 175 degrees what is the degree measure of ^S.

Triangle ZAQ is congruent to Triangle XSW. If the sum of the measures of angles Z+Q is 175 degrees, what is the measure of S?

The problem is, we don't have the measurements of either Z or Q.

At the moment, S could be a huge range of numbers. Do you know what either Z or Q is?

Z and Q is 175 Degrees.

that means Z could be 80, Q could be 95

or Z could be 125 and Q could be 50

There's no possible way to find a definitive answer for angle S's measure.

Wait a minute... I'm dumb -n-);;;

180-175 is 5

Angle S is 5 degrees.

ΔZAQ = ΔXSW

Therefore......angles Z and Q   = angles X and W

And Z + Q   =   175°   = X + W

So.......angle A must  = 180 - 175 =  5°

But, angle A   = angle S......so S must also = 5°   Mar 21, 2017
