a.) $\angle$N=82$^{\circ}$ b.) $\angle$P=42$^{\circ}$ c.) NP=10.5 d.) QS=8

Work Step by Step

$\angle$N=$\angle$R=82 $\angle$P=180-$\angle$R-$\angle$M $\angle$P=180-82-56 $\angle$P=42 $\frac{QR}{MN}$=$\frac{6}{9}$=$\frac{2}{3}$ NP=$\frac{3}{2}$RS NP=$\frac{3}{2}$(7) NP=10.5 QS=$\frac{2}{3}$MP QS=$\frac{2}{3}$12 QS=8
