    Angles on one side of a straight line will always add to 180 degrees. @phi

    there is no such thing at all it is like you are saying the other add up to a different value or something

    ok , with that info you can find y and once you find y you can find x (3 angles of a triangle add up to 180)

    so the first step is to find y 57+61+ y = 180 add up 57 and 61

    ok so 118 + y= 180 to find y you could test numbers y=1, 2 , 3, ... but that will take forever. add -180 to both sides 118-118 + y = 180 -118 and simplify both sides. can you do that ?

    **add -118 to both sides (not 180)

    yes, y is 62 but remember the question wants "x" however the 3 angles of the triangle add up to 180 so you have more work to do x+ y+67= 180 and y is 62 so x+62+67= 180
