# Find the values of x and y in the following parallelogram.

**Solution:**

Given, the figure represents a __parallelogram__.

We have to find the values of x and y.

We know that the __adjacent angles__ of a parallelogram are __supplementary__.

So, 120° + (5x + 10)° = 180°

130° + 5x = 180°

5x = 180° - 130°

5x = 50°

x = 50°/5

x = 10°

We know that the opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal.

6y = 120°

y = 120°/6

y = 20°

Therefore, the values of x and y are 10° and 20°.
