the two triangle are similar , then the angles of the smaller triangle is the same with the bigger triangle, so "d" is already not an option
now to get the value of y try this proportion
5:30 = x:18
5 x 6 =30
X x 6 =18?
angle y would be equivalent to the angle in the second triangle.
And so it would be answer choice A.
A? you sure?
Yes, A is correct
In similar triangle, corresponding angle are congruent, so y = 53
Also, in similar triangle, the lengths of corresponding sides are proportional.
You know the ratio 30/5. The other sides must be in the same ratio, so
18/x = 30/5
yeah~ because if they really are proportional, the sides would have to be multiplied by the same constant.
