Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
We know from the figure that <BAC=x , <BDC=<BCD=2x
So BD=BC, since <BDC=<BAC+<ABD, this tells you <ABD=x as well.
Therefore, AD=BD, since we have already find out that BD=BC, so AD=BC. Statement 1 alone is sufficient.
Statement 2 tells you the value of X, but didn't tell you anything about the length of the segment, therefore is not sufficient.

I was going to pick A originally, but upon seeing that x=36 (I assumed that x should be 30), I felt no choice but to pick C.
Why is it unnecessary to know what x is? _________________
