One below the 8 and another below the 4. There is also a big x made of the lines going through the circle.

There are two inside the circle.

1 is below the No. 8 & 1 is below the No. 4.

There are two x's, both next to an arithmetic operator and an integer.

4(x + 5) = 8(x - 3)

Take it from here.

If I do that then all you'll learn is that I know how to do it.

Use the Intersecting Chords Theorem:

➤ Intersecting chords theorem:

— — states that the products of the lengths of the line segments on each chord are equal.

8 ( x - 3 ) = 4 ( x + 5 )

8x - 24 = 4x + 20

8x - 4x = 20 + 24

4x = 44

x = 11

8(x - 3) = 4(x + 5)

8x - 4x = 20 + 24

4x = 44

x = 11

It's hiding under the bed.

8 +4 + x + 5 +x -3= 360 degrees

10 + 2x = 360

2x= 360 -10

2x =35

x= 17.5 degrees
