Here is the thing, I'm behind on schoolwork because I do not understand what I'm doing ad I have tried reaching out to my teacher but she does not answer. I cannot keep getting behind. I did some practice on my class I got many wrong. I want to understand why I got it wrong and the steps. I really need help. Here is the first problem: Find the values of x and y. So there are two vertical pararell lines intersected by a transversal. I will attach an image as soon as possible.

    The answer is actually x= 100 and y=10 but I don't understand how to obtain that answer
