answer: i'm not going to give you the answer, but some hints to work it out.

step-by-step explanation: so, if there is a straight line that means that the line angle is 180°. so we subtract the 2 angle measures provided, (15 and 38) from 180. so the answer is 180 - (38 + 15). (you have to solve the equation)

$Find the measure of the missing angle pls me plsssss$

1/5(x-2)=1/10(x+6)
Distribute and multiply first
(1/5*x) -(1/5*2)=(1/10*x) +(1/10*6)
1/5x-2/5=1/10x+6/10

We do not have the same denominators on both sides. 5 goes into 10 two times so we will multiply everything on the left by 2 to get a common denominator.
2/10x-4/10=1/10x+6/10
Subtract 1/10x from both sides
1/10x-4/10=6/10
1/10x=10/10
1/10x= 1
Multiply both sides by 10/1 (the fraction inverse) to get rid of the fraction.

(10/1)(1/10x) =(1)(10/1)
x= 10

Check work:
1/5(x-2)=1/10(x+6)
