what we know: cbo = bco (isoscles triangle). bao = boa (isocles triangle). (1) we know that cbo = 2bao b/c of the the external angle rule. 120 = bao + (180-2cbo) ; cbo = 2bao. 120 = bao + (180 -4bao) 3bao = 60; bao = 20. So (1) is sufficient. (2) much easier to solve; bco = 2 bao 40 = 2bao; bao = 20

I just worked out the second question (out of curiosity) and got C for answer as well; the only way to satisfy both satements is when both x and y are negative #s (from bot...
