# If m ∠ 1 = 2 x − 3   and   m ∠ 2 = 6 x − 1 , find: a) x _________ b) m ∠ 2 ________ To determine

To find:

The values of x and m2.

Explanation

Given:

The given figure is,

m1=2x3andm2=6x1

Calculation:

From the figure, 1and2 are forming linear pair.

Linear pair is a pair of angles forming on a straight line. Sum of a linear pair of angles is 180°.

m1+m2=180°2x3+6x1=180°8x4=180°x=23°
