Vertically Opposite angles are equal
5x + 5a = 5y/2

i.e. 2x + 2a = y

Also, 5x + 5a + 2x + 30 = 180

i.e. 7x + 5a = 150

Also, y = 2x + 30

i.e. 2x + 2a = 2x + 30

i.e. a = 15

Answer: Option A

5x+5a=5y/2
2x+30=y

Substitute value of y

10x+10a= 10x+150
10a=150
A=15

Answer A.

(A) 15

(B) 30

(C) 45

(D) 60

(E) 135


a) \(y+\frac{5y}{2}=180\) or, y=360/7 (Angles on one side of a straight line always add to 180 degrees)
b) y=2x+30 or, \(x=\frac{75}{7}\) (opposite angles are congruent)
c) 5x+5a+2x+30=180 or, 7x+5a=150 or, 5a=150-75=75 or, a=15

Ans. (A)

we can say, 5x+5a=5y/2
=>5(x+a)=5y/2
=>2x+2a=y

again, y=2x+30
=>2x+2a=2x+30
=>a=15
Ans A
