Geometry equation

I do not understand how to work a problem or equation out for geometry.

The equation refers to two parrellel lines that have a transversal line running diagonal through each one. The exterior anglebottom left part of the top parrellel line, measures at 52 degrees. how do I find the angles to 6 and 4

m(�Ú6) = 8x - 40 m(�Ú4) = 6x + 2

  1. The 52 degrees is the interior not exterior

  2. m(angle6) = 8x-40 and m(angle 4) = 6x + 2
    Do I solve this problem like this?

    8x - 40 = 6x + 2
    8x = 6x + 42
    2x = 42
    x = 21
