Angle measures opposite sides of equal length are the same. mЄB ϭ 38° 38° ϩ mЄB ϭ 38° ϩ 38° ϭ 76°. We have found that the sum of two of the angles is 76Њ. Since all of the angle measures add up to 180Њ, mЄA ϭ 180° Ϫ 76° ϭ 104° mЄA ϭ 104° mes47759_ch01_026-039 10/20/2007 04:37 Page 28 pinnacle 201:MHIA038:mhmes2:mes2ch01: 28 Chapter 1 The Real Number System and Geometry You Try 2 Find the measures of angles A and B in this isosceles triangle.
