Solution

It is given that AB || CD and CD || EF

∴ AB || CD || EF (Lines parallel to the same line are parallel to each other)

It can be observed that

x = z (Alternate interior angles)             ...........(1)

It is given that yz = 3: 7

Let the common ratio between y and z be a.

∴ y = 3a and z = 7a

Also, x + y = 180º (Co-interior angles on the same side of the transversal)

y = 180º                [Using equation (1)]

7a + 3a = 180º

10a = 180º

a = 18º

∴ x = 7a = 7 × 18º = 126º
