#### Solution

Given figure is as follows:

Since (x + 15°)and (2y + 25°)are vertically opposite angles, therefore,

`(x + 15) = (2y + 25)`

` x -2y = 25° - 15°`

` x - 2y = 10°` (1)

Also, 3y and (2y + 25°)are alternate interior opposite angles, therefore,

`3y = (2y + 25°)`

`3y - 2y = 25°`

` y = 25°`

Substituting in equation (i), we get:

x - 2(25°) = 10°

x - 50° = 10°

x = 50° + 10°

x = 60°
