    Good, Now you know That the bottom right angle is 47 degrees, right? Now the left side bottom angle is also 47 degree because this is an isosceles triangle.

    What is 180-(47+47)=? That will give you the top angle, divide that by 2 to get y.

    94, right? Now 180-94=86. That will give you the complete angles of the triangle. So 86/2=y So y=43. Now 43+47=90 So 180-90=x

    so it's x=90 also sorry to basically have you do it for me like that, was doing something abruptly.
