Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ403

The figure below is not drawn to scale. Given that AB, CD and EF are straight lines, find ∠x.

UPQ403-1

 

Solution:

UPQ403-2

            AB and CD are straight lines and intersect at G

            ∠ BGD = ∠ ACG = 370

            CD and EF are straight lines and intersect at I

            ∠ CIE = ∠ FID = 730

            The three lines intersect each others as shown to form a triangle GIH

            ∠ x is the external angle of the triangle GIH

            ∠ x = ∠ BGD + ∠ CIE = 370 + 730 = 1100
