Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ343

In the figure below, not drawn to scale, ABCD is a rhombus. FG is a straight line. The size of ∠BEC is 3/5 the size of ∠ADC.
(a) Find  ∠ x.

(b) Find  ∠ y.



            ABCD is a rhombus

            ∠ ADC = ∠ ABC = (1800 – 1150) = 650

              AE and FG are straight lines

            ∠ x = ∠ ABC + ∠ GBC = 650 + 580 = 1230

            ∠ BEC is 3/5 of fraction of ∠ ADC



            5 units = 650

            1 unit = 130

            ∠ BEC = 3 × 130 = 390

             FG is a straight line

             ∠ GBE = 1800 – 1230 = 570

             ∠ y = 1800 – 580 – 570 – 390 = 260
