**Step-by-step explanation:**

(7)

(25x + 8) and (9x + 2) are adjacent angles and sum to 180° , then

25x + 8 + 9x + 2 = 180 , that is

34x + 10 = 180 ( subtract 10 from both sides )

34x = 170 ( divide both sides by 34 )

x = 5

Then

9x + 2 = 9(5) + 2 = 45 + 2 = 47

(7y + 5) and (9x + 2) are vertical angles and are congruent , so

7y + 5 = 47 ( subtract 5 from both sides )

7y = 42 ( divide both sides by 7 )

y = 6

(8)

(11x - 24) and (7x + 30) are vertical angles and are congruent, so

11x - 24 = 7x + 30 ( subtract 7x from both sides )

4x - 24 = 30 ( add 24 to both sides )

4x = 54 ( divide both sides by 4 )

x = 13.5

Similarly

(17y - 4) and (5y + 38) are vertical angles and congruent , then

17y - 4 = 5y + 38 ( subtract 5y from both sides )

12y - 4 = 38 ( add 4 to both sides )

12y = 42 ( divide both sides by 12 )

y = 3.5
