First, recall the ways to prove lines parallel. See the attached chart.

I agree. Look at this. The two angles marked in blue are sameside interior angles. Theorem: If two lines are cut by a transversal so that sameside interior angles are supplementary, then the lines are parallel.

So, you have an equation to solve: 45x  5 + 16x + 2 = 180

45x  5 + 16x + 2 = 180 Combine the like terms on the left. What do you get?

Yes, that is what I got. Now, we have to get y.

and to get y do we combine the terms on the right?

I'm looking at these angles marked in red. They are supplementary because they are two adjacent angles whose exterior sides form a line. So, 16x + 2 + 26y = 180 16*3 + 2 + 26y = 180 Solve that ^ for y. Note that I replaced the x by 3 because that is what you solved for earlier.

That is what I got. So, which option is that?

Yes. It would be easy to get mixed up and put a). It is a good idea to doublecheck.
