Ok Now i can see the whole figure....

well, lets look at the diagram as a trapozoid....

75+85+4x=360 slove

x= 200/4 x=50

y = 180-75-50= 55

My method is a bit slow, but easy to understand, I think.

(180-75-85)+(180-2x)+(180-2x)=180
x=50
y=180-75-50=55

rxs0005, please post the image again. I think i must have made a silly mistake in adding/subtracting again.

55 for me too.

Tricky question......

I solved it as :

75+x+y = 180

y+(y-10)+(180- 2x) = 180

Solved both equations and got y = 55

how did you get 180-2x twice.. one is for the inner triangle.. i am unable to understand the second one..

I was using the left little triangle. The left corner can be obtained from the big triangle. The up corner plus 2x is a straight line (180) and the right corner plus two x is a straight line too.
