>>160702312
It's possible but the angle values given make it impossible. A triangle's interior angles have to add up to 180 degrees. However the numbers given throw that requirement out the window. Once that requirement is gone; the formulas no longer work. You'd get two or three answers where there's meant to be one.

The third angle with 60 and 70 is 50 degrees yet looks more than 90. The angle to either side of it on the same line are 130 degrees but look like 70. This is why you don't assume

If we're supposed to solve for x, we can't because that's not a fully formed equation. It needs to be equal to something.

Simplify the expression.
I know that you really wanted to impress people by showing that you know an equation needs equal signs but you should have thought about it a tiny bit more.

check the value of what should be γ (the angle at C). Anon here gave it the value 20 because he constructed a rectangle with E,D, C and the intersection between EA and BD. However, when you construct a large triangle ABC, the angle should be 80° to make the sum of all angles 180°.
The question can't be answered with the values given here.

No, it is not. It is possible to get the answer and prove it mathematically. You just can't solve it by relying on systems of linear equations only.

all you have to do is assign any length to a side and go from there

the answer is 20

It's common practice to not have the image make sense for the angles given so that
a) You can reuse the same image and just stick in different values
b) Some lazy students can't just measure the answer

>>160712635
Are you literally retarded? This has nothing to do with the solving method, if the angles don't add up, it's completely impossible for the given values to add up to something.
Also this has absolutely nothing to do with linear equations, this is geometry.

>>160712814
Even if you didn't have the idea to solve it by elementary geometry (and you are too lazy to find the solution on internet), you can still solve it by trigonometry. So, it is still not "is mathematically provable to be impossible".

>>160712941

the "drawing parallel lines" argument is fallacious because he, without a solution doesn't know where (relative to other points) the new point (F) in his examples will fall. If F falls on either side of E, the equations used will change. By linear systems the problem has 4 unknown variables and a system of rank 3. Any solution will work so long as it's orthogonal to the systems nullspace, ie that (\alpha + CDE) - (BDE + CED) = 0
Essentially, he's using a not-to-scale image to wrongly impose extra restrictions on the solution space.

There is only one way to construct the triangle fulfilling all the conditions required (in Euclidean geometry). If any solution will work, the easiest way to show it is to show alternative diagram. But, I really doubt you can do it.

I want to believe you because I can't immediately discredit trig-based (arbitrary fixed length) approaches. The trig-less approach is infinite solutions though.
