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

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

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.
