x+y = 180

5y+y = 180

y = 30

x = 5y = 150

Hence option D = 150 is the answer.

Option D.

x = 5y.

5y + y = 180.

y = 30 and x = 150.

Looking at the diagram we see that y is equal to the angle that is supplementary with angle x. Since supplementary angles sum to 180 degrees, we have:

x + y = 180

Since x = 5y we have:

5y + y = 180

6y = 180

y = 30

So, x = 5y = 150.

two parallel lines making Z thus their angle must be same.

thus x + Y = 180
6Y = 180
thus Y = 30
and X = 150
