    Answer:

    The measure of angle U is -9.46

    Step-by-step explanation:

    You do not need the information about angle W to measure the angle of U. (So you can ignore all info about W).

    U = 6x +11

    By definition the incline of this line is 6.

    tan(U) = 6/1

    so angle U = arctan(6) = 80.54

    It was given that U is an vertical angle. Since the difference between horizontal and vertical is 90 degrees, you can add 90 degrees.In this case you have an incline of -1/6

    tan(U) = -1/6

    so angle U = arctan(-1/6) = -9.46

    The measure of angle U is -9.46

    Answer: Angle U is  41°

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Vertical  angles have the measures so they will equal to each other.

    Set them equal to each other and solve for x.

    6x + 11 = 10x – 9     Add 9 to both sides

         +9           + 9

    6x + 20  = 10x

    -6x            -6x

      20 = 4x      Divide both sides by 4

    x = 5  

     Now input x into the equations and solve for  the measure.

    6(5) + 11  =  30 + 11 = 41  

    10(5)  – 9 =  50 – 9 = 41
