Anyone have any insight into why B is right??

- In the figure above, AB is a line segment. What is

x - y/x+y ?

A) 5/24

B) 1/4

C) 7/16

D) 11/24

E) 7/13

Can u post a screenshot!

If you look at the diagram you will see that the group of X and group of Y is divided by line AB. Which means that the sum of all X = 180 and sum of all Y= 180.

Now coming to X side, we see that 180 is divided in 3 equal angles marked X. **Therefore value of X is *180/3=60* **

Similarly Y side is divided in to 5 equal angles marked Y. **Therefore value of Y is *180/5=36* **

Now that we know the values of X(60) & Y(36), plug those values in equation and solve it.

This was great thank you! I was doing 3x+5y=360. Thank you again!
