In the figure above, if BC = CA, then Angle CBA = BAC = y
Also since the lines intersect at C, Angle BCA = CDE = 30

In a triangle, the sum of the three angles equals 180
2y + 30 = 180
2y = 150
Therefore, y = 75(Option C)

Ans- C

BC= CA
Thus angle A=angle B (Angles oppsite to congruent sides)

BCA=DCE = 30 (vertically opposite angles).

In triangle BAC ,

Angle BCA+ Angle B+ Angle A = 180

30 +2x = 180 . Thus x = 75

2 sides equal
so we get angle BAC = CBA = y

so, 2y + 30 =180
y = 75

answer = C

In the above figure,

Given that :
1. BC=CA so, angle CBA=CAB=y
2. Angle DCE=Angle BCA = 30 (since they both are vertical angles and will be equal)

There fore In Triangle ABC,
Angles (CBA + CAB + ACB) =180
y+y+30=180
So, y = 75

1. Since angle DCA = 30, angle BCA must be 30 (opposite angle is equal).
2. Look in the triangle ABC = angle CAB + angle ABC + angle BCA = 180. So, angle CAB + Angle ABC must be 150.
3. Since BC = CA, angle in front of this line must be equal. So, we divide 150 by 2 = 75 degree.

C.
