ok what is the value if x

(2x+24) degrees on the top of the lines that form a X

and on the other side of the angle is 142 Degrees..

I know you have to have 180 degrees but those x's confuse me. I have this figure out and narrowed down to two answers.... 118 or 59 so if you take the 59 and times by 2 you get 118 and then at the 24 you get 142 to match the other identical side HELP!!

What do you mean by "the other side"?

If you mean the angle opposite 2x+24, then they are the same:

2x+24 = 142

x = 59

and the angle is 142 degrees

If you mean the adjacent angle, then the two angles make a straight line, and

2x+24 + 142 = 180

x = 7

and the angle is 38 degrees
