<p>The pink angles are adjacent to the blue angle and form a straight line, so we know that:</p>
<p><code>\color{<var>BLUE</var>}{<var>A</var>x + <var>B</var>} + \color{<var>PINK</var>}{y} = 180</code></p>
<p>The pink angles equal each other because they are <code>\color{<var>GREEN</var>}{\text{vertical angles}}</code>.</p>
<div class="graphie" data-update="parallel-lines">

<div>
<p>One of the pink angles <code>\color{<var>GREEN</var>}{corresponds}</code> with the orange angle, and the other pink angle forms an <code>\color{<var>GREEN</var>}{\text{alternate interior angle}}</code>. Therefore, the orange angle measure equals the pink angle measure.</p>
<p><code>\color{<var>PINK</var>}{y} = \color{<var>ORANGE</var>}{<var>C</var>x + <var>D</var>}</code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p>Substitute <code>\color{<var>ORANGE</var>}{<var>C</var>x + <var>D</var>}</code> for <code>\color{<var>PINK</var>}{y}</code> in our first equation.</p>
<p><code>\color{<var>BLUE</var>}{<var>A</var>x + <var>B</var>} + \color{<var>ORANGE</var>}{<var>C</var>x + <var>D</var>} = 180</code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p>Combine like terms.</p>
<p><code><var>A + C</var>x + <var>B + D</var> = 180</code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p><var>B + D > 0 ? "Subtract" : "Add"</var> <code>\color{<var>PINK</var>}{<var>abs(B + D)</var>}</code> <var>B + D > 0 ? "from" : "to"</var> both sides.</p>
<p><code>(<var>A + C</var>x + <var>B + D</var>) \color{<var>PINK</var>}{+ <var>-(B + D)</var>} = 180 \color{<var>PINK</var>}{+ <var>-(B + D)</var>}</code></p>
<p><code><var>A + C</var>x = <var>180 - B - D</var></code></p>
</div>
<div>
<p>Divide by <code>\color{<var>PINK</var>}{<var>A + C</var>}</code>.</p>
<p><code>\dfrac{<var>A + C</var>x}{\color{<var>PINK</var>}{<var>A + C</var>}} = \dfrac{<var>180 - B - D</var>}{\color{<var>PINK</var>}{<var>A + C</var>}}</code></p>

<p>Simplify.</p>
<p><code>x = <var>(180 - B - D) / (A + C)</var></code></p>
<p>Note that the blue and orange angles are <code>\color{<var>GREEN</var>}{supplementary}</code>.</p>
