we have this isosceles trapezoid |dw:1359064418373:dw|

OpenStudy (jim_thompson5910):

since we're told it's isosceles, we know the two base angles A and B are congruent, so we can say angle B = angle A angle B = 2x |dw:1359064628522:dw|

with any trapezoid, the angles that are part of the parallel sides are supplementary, so angle B + angle C = 180 2x + 10x + 24 = 180 12x + 24 = 180 solve for x
