    this is an isosceles trapezoid since the two non parallel sides are equal

    so the two angles (the base angles) shown are equal this means that 2x+17 = 7x-13

    @jim_thompson5910 I got 4=x, but it isn't one of the answer choices

    i think the answer is 6, because 2x+17 = 7x-13 17+13 = 7x - 2x 30 = 5x x = 30/5 x =6

    The sad part is, I didn't even notice that mistake when I was re-writing it on here.
