A. 20°
B. 30°
C. 45°
D. 50°
E. 60°


since line y & x are perpendicular so angle 90
angle y & z will be 180-30-90 ; 60
IMO E

Solution


Given:
    • Lines X, Y, and Z intersect to form a rectangle.
    • Line X is perpendicular to line Y.
    • Line X forms a 30° angle with line Z.

To find:
    • The degree measure of the angle formed by the intersection of lines Y and Z

Approach and Working:
As the intersection of lines X, Y, and Z forms a triangle, the 3 angles created by their intersection must sum up to 180°.

Therefore, we can say
    • 90° + 30° + angle between lines Y and Z = 180°
    Or, angle between lines Y and Z = 180° - 120° = 60°

Hence, the correct answer is option E.

Answer: E
