Sum of all angles on a straight line = 180 degrees.

5x + 4x + 3x = 180
=> 12x = 180
=> x = 15

Angle SRU = 5x + 4x = 9x
9x = 9 * 15 = 135 degrees.

Angle SRU=5x+4x=9x
To find: 9x=?

We have, Angle SRV=180
Or, 5x+4x+3x=180
Or, 12x=180
Or, x=15

Therefore, 9x=9*15=135 degrees

Ans. (D)

Solving for X:a straight line equals 180 degrees

5x + 4x + 3x = 180
12x=180
180/12
x= 15

Angle measure of SRU:
5x+4x = 9x and x = 15, so

9 * 15 =135
