Question: Triangle and Line

Comment on Triangle and Line

Would y also be equal to 90 + 5x (i.e., the sum of the two interior angles of a triangle)?

That works too! We get...
Quantity A: 7x and Quantity B: 90 + 5x
Subtract 5x from both to get: Quantity A: 2x and Quantity B: 90
At this point, we have a similar situation as in the solution.

We can even substitute value of 7x to column A. In that case
Column A : 90
Column B : 90+5x
so column B > A
