Answer:∠XVW = 36°

Step-by-step explanation:The external angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the 2 opposite interior angles.

∠WXY is an external angle to the triangle and

∠XVW and ∠VWX are the 2 opposite interior angles, thus

6x – 19 = x + 17 + 3x + 2, that is

6x – 19 = 4x + 19 ( subtract 4x from both sides )

2x – 19 = 19 ( add 19 to both sides )

2x = 38 ( divide both sides by 2 )

x = 19

Hence

∠XVW = x + 17 = 19 + 17 = 36°
