$AB \parallel CD$, $\angle APQ=150^0$ and $\angle PRD=127^o$.

To do:

We have to find $x$ and $y$.


We know that,

If the lines intersected by the transversal are parallel, alternate interior angles are equal.

This implies,

$\angle APQ=\angle PQR$

By substituting the values we get,

$\angle APQ=\angle PRD$

This implies,


In the similar way, we get,

$\angle APR=\angle PRD$

By substituting the value of $\angle PRD$

We get,

$\angle APR=127^o$

We know that,

$\angle APR=\angle APQ+\angle QPR$

Now, by substituting the values of $\angle QPR=y$ and $\angle APR=127^o$

We get,


This implies,





Hence, the values of $x$ and $y$ are $50^o$ and $77^o$ respectively.
