In the diagram j//n and m /_1 is 130 degrees. Find the measure of each angle.

1. m/_ 2

2. m/_ 3

3. m/_4

I really don't understand it.

Thanks :)

    The total measure of a line is 180 degrees. Angles 1 and 2 make up an entire line. Therefore,

    m1 + m2 = 180

    130 + m2 = 180

    m2 = 50 degrees

    Since j and n are parallel, m2 and m3 are equal. Therefore, m3 is equal to 50 degrees. Angle 3 and 4 make up an entire line. Therefore,

    m3 + m4 = 180

    50 + m4 = 180

    m4 = 130 degrees
