yeah it seems to be glitched -- but i somehow managed to see the image by clicking around LOL the exterior angles of a polygon ALWAYS add up to $180^\circ$

since we know that, we can write the sum of all that we are given and write it all equal to $180^\circ$

$\large[ (5x+4)+(4x+9)+(9x-6)+(4x+1)+(7x+4)=180 \large]^\circ$

$(5x+4+4x+9+9x-6+4x+1+7x+4=180)^\circ$

$( 29x+12=180)^\circ$

$( 29x=168)^\circ$

$\boxed{ (x=\frac{168}{29}})^\circ$ which we can say just about $\boxed{5.8^\circ}$

I can't see the image.

i thought the exterior angles added up to 360...

I think you're right.

Using the same solution idea as UsernameTooShort.

29x + 12 = 360

x = 12

oh lord i never noticed -- yes they indeed do add up to 360

at that moment i was working with triangles so thats why i was thinking of 180 LOL
