In regular pentagon \(PQRST\),  X is the midpoint of segment ST. What is the measure of angle XQS in degrees?

Draw QT  and QS

 

Angles TQP, SQT  and  SQR  will trisect the interior angle PQR

And PQR  = 108

 

So  ...angle  SQT  = 108 / 3   = 36

 

But...by symmetry....angle XQS  =  (1/2)angle SQT  = (1/2)36  = 18°
