    Can you find two angles that are identical and are in terms of w, equate them to get an equation in w and then solve for w. Then you know two of the angles in the triangle and can say that the two angles + t = 180. Then solve for t.

    I done 3w+40=180 then solved that and got 46.6 is that correct so far?

    I'm not sure how you got that... where did it come from? This may be useful:

    I added the 2w in the triangle with the w+40 on the line and since the w+40 is on a straight line it would add up to 180 that's how I got 3w+40=180

    How did you get that 2w in the triangle?

    the "2w" in your triangle should be 72 from the alternate angles theorem, look a few posts up for the picture I posted.
