Answer

x=12$^{\circ}$ y=4$^{\circ}$ m$\angle$7=76$^{\circ}$

Work Step by Step

m$\angle$3=m$\angle$6 6x+y=4x+7y 2x=6y x=3y m$\angle$3+m$\angle$5=180$^{\circ}$ 6x+y+8x+2y=180$^{\circ}$ 14x+3y=180$^{\circ}$ Substitute for X. 14(3y)+3y=180$^{\circ}$ 45y=180$^{\circ}$ y=4$^{\circ}$ Substitute for Y. x=3y x=3(4) x=12$^{\circ}$ m$\angle$7=m$\angle$3=6x+y m$\angle$7=6(12)+(4) m$\angle$7=76$^{\circ}$
