What is L and M? Lines? IF so, what is this degree business in the parenthesis?

If L and M are angles, how can angles be parallel.

I can make no sense of what you posted.

I assume you mean

the slope of Line L = 3x+50

the slope of line M = 2x-20

If the lines are parallel, the slopes are equal. So,

3x+50 = 2x-20

x = -70
