Angles and arcs have different dimensions. Both are presented as dimensionless numbers in your question.

The question makes no sense to me.

Presumably C is the center of a circle, and A and B are points on the circle.

arc AB = r * angle ACB

5x+2 = r(3x+14)

5x+2 = 3rx + 14r

x(5-3r) = 14r-2

x = (14r-2)/(5-3r)

Not knowing the radius of the circle, it's tough to get a value for x.
