• what does decomposing mean?
• Hey kimchhay te

composing means putting together and the prefix de means not so decomposing means taking something apart

hope this helped!
• how do you correctly do the angles? Like it could be mistaken for CAE or something like that. Does it matter?
• Yes, it does as you go in order to find the angles when solving. It is possible either way but it is easier in order.
• There is a point where the video dosent explain the work, for example it says what is the measurement of y. Hint z is a straight angle it dosent explain how in the videos to solve that
• why am I a drop of paint🟣
• what does protracter mean and angle
• is there more videos to make this understand more?
• i don't get the video really well
