^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°

 

 

 

cool cool cool
