Hi,

Could someone check that I'm right with this one, or put me right! I've worked the value out as

x=30 and y (2x) = 60. I've come to this as I think it's an isosceles triangle so the base angles would be equal. Am I right?

Thank you!

60 + x + y = 180

if y = 2x ...

60 + x + 2x = 180

try again ...
