1) All angles of a rectangle are right angles, so the measure of angle CBA is 90 degrees.

2) Since all angles of a rectangle are right angles, angle BAD measures 90 degrees. Subtracting the 25 degrees of angle BAW from this, we get that angle CAD has a measure of 65 degrees.

3) Opposite sides of a rectangle are parallel, so by the alternate interior angles theorem, the measure of angle ACD is 25 degrees.

4) Because diagonals of a rectangle are congruent and bisect each other, this means BW=WA. So, since angles opposite equal sides in a triangle (in this case triangle ABW) are equal, the measure of angle ABW is 25 degrees. This means that the measure of angle CBD is 90-25=65 degrees.

5) In triangle AWB, since angles in a triangle add to 180 degrees, angle BWA measures 130 degrees.

6) Once again, since diagonals of a rectangle are congruent and bisect each other, AW=WD. So, the measures of angles WAD and ADW are each 65 degrees. Thus, because angles in a triangle (in this case triangle AWD) add to 180 degrees, the measure of angle AWD is 50 degrees.
