My wife and I are both in our thirties and she decided to go back to
school to be a teacher so she (we) are having to re-learn this stuff
but she got this question wrong on a quiz and I (we) just can't figure
out why (One of those classes where the teacher is really no help) So,
a correct answer and maybe a brief description of why/how would be
most appreciated.
3. Find the measue of each angle in the isosceles triangle
(The point is in the middle at the top (angle V) and I don't know how
to make the degree sign so I'll use an asterix) and the angle at the
bottom left is U and the bottom right is W and the lines VU and VW are
the ones that are the same length

V = (x+3y+40)*
U = (y+10)*
W = (4x-50)*

Don't want to skew anyones answer so I'll tell you what we came up
with after a reply. Please. Thanks.
