y degree is 30 degrees
Since triangle is equal to 180, plug in equation

30 + 7x + 3x = 180
30 + 10 x = 180
10x = 150
x = 15

3x = 3(15) = 45

No need to do any more working out. The answer is B

Ans is b 30 degree

7x +3x= 150
X= 15

7x = 105
3x= 45

So the reaming angle 180-150= 30

Hence the smallest angle measures 30 degrees

1. \(Y+150 = 180\) (straight line), so Y = 30.
2. For the remaining 2 angles --> \(7X+3X = (180-y)\) --> \(10X = 150\) --> \(X = 15\).
3. Thus other angles are \(7*15 = 105\) and \(3*15 = 45\) degree.

Hence the smallest angle is 30 or Y.

y=30
7x+3x=150
x=15
so 3x=45

I think that Ans is b 30 degree
Since,

7x +3x= 150
X= 15

7x = 105
3x= 45

So the reaming angle 180-150= 30

Hence the smallest angle measures 30 degrees

Sum to 2 interior angles (not adjacent to the exterior angle) is equal to the exterior angle.

=> 7x+3x = 150 => x=15 => y=30

Therefore the smallest angle is 30
