consider triangle WXZ ; the 3 angles in your question are the 3 angles in this triangle., and they add up to 180 degrees so we can form the following equation which you can solve for x 5x + 11 + 6x  10 + 91 = 180 then plug in this value of x itto the expression for angle WXY

Wait... I got 11+102=180 and then I subtracted 102 on both sides and i got 78... and divided 11 which gave me 7... but that's not my answer.
