3 things are necessary here

1) Opposite angles are the same;
2) Angles of the equilateral triangle;
3) Triangle with sides 3, 4, 5 is a right triangle as \(3^2+4^2=5^2\);

if you catch those 3 concepts quickly, you wont waste 7 minutes like me

After some smooth calculations, you get
360=60+90+2x
x=105

IMO
Ans: D

LHS is right angled we get 90* and RHS is equilaterlal ∆ 60*
so sum of quadrilaterial = 150+2x= 360
x= 105
IMO D

Left most triangle is a right angle triangle
Right most triangle is an equilateral triangle= Each angle = 60
Sum of the angle of the middle figure =360
360 = 2x+60+90
x=105 i.e D

Since the triangle on the left side is a 3-4-5 right triangle the angle opposite the side of 5 is 90 degrees. Thus, the unlabeled angle on the left of the quadrilateral is also 90 degrees.

The triangle on the right hand side is equilateral so the angle opposite the base of 1 is 60 degrees. Thus, the unlabeled angle on the right of the quadrilateral is also 60 degrees.

A quadrilateral has 360 degrees. Therefore, we can create the following equation for the angles of the quadrilateral in the middle:

90 + x + x + 60 = 360

2x = 210

x = 105

Answer: D
