Hi Bunuel, Thanks for all that you do. Your explanations have made the study grind a lot more manageable. I was under the impression that when you write out an angle expression (ex. ∠ABC), it means the angle is formed by the intersection of line AB with line BC (see attached illustration) Is this the case? If so, I'm having trouble visualizing how you could form the parallelogram above using the given information. Thanks in advance!

Can someone explain how B can be the vertex of angle CBD if the prompt states AB=CD and AD=BC? I can't figure out how to draw this...

Question didn't mentioned that Opposite sides are parallel !!!!
can we still assume that given quadrilateral is Parallelogram?
Requesting expert analysis on this !!!
Thanks in advance

A. 30 degrees B. 50 degrees C. 70 degrees D. 100 degrees E. 120 degrees Consecutive angles are supplementary => \(\angle BAD + \angle ADC=180\) \(\angle ADC=18080=100\) Am I right here?

+1 for option D. The angle is 100.

Does the position of A, B , C and D matter for these types of problems? If we wanted to draw it, what is the correct placement?

Because you know that its a parallelogram, you don't need the information that CBD is 30 degrees. Opposite angles in parallelogram are the same and quadrilateral has 360 degrees in total > ADC = [360(2*80)]/2

Hi, I solved by simply deducting angle(BAD) from 180 degrees to find the supplementary angel of BAD, which will be equal to angle ADC since AB and DC are parallel. Is this approach correct? Bunuel wrote: Official Solution:
In quadrilateral \(ABCD\), \(AB = CD\) and \(BC = AD\). If \(\angle CBD = 30\) degrees and \(\angle BAD = 80\) degrees, what is the value of \(\angle ADC\)?
A. 30 degrees B. 50 degrees C. 70 degrees D. 100 degrees E. 120 degrees
Because \(AB = CD\) and \(BC = AD\), \(ABCD\) is a parallelogram. \(\angle ADC = \angle BDA + \angle BDC = \angle CBD + \angle ABD = \angle CBD + (180  \angle BAD  \angle BDA) =\) \(= 30 + (180  80  30) = 100\).
Answer: D
