This is my first post. I hope I am doing this correctly. Please advise. TKU, Zach

I have the shape of (an upside down) letter "T". The horizontal LINE has points T, R and S. The vertical RAY extends from R and has point X on it.

Given: Angle TRS is a straight angle

Angle TRX is a right angle

measure (m) of angle TRS = 2x + 5y

measure (m) of angle XRS = 3x + 3y

Solve for x and y.

Please explain.
