Statements Reasons
\(\angle RST\cong\angle XYZ\) Corresponding angles in similar triangles are congruent
\(m\angle RST=m\angle XYZ\) Congruent angles have the same measure, by definition.
\(23^{\circ}=m\angle{XYZ}\) Substitution property of equality OR Transitive property of equality.
\(m\angle{XYZ}+m\angle{YZX}+m\angle{ZXY}=180^{\circ}\) Triangle sum therom (The sum of the interior angles of triangle is 180)
\(23^{\circ}+47^{\circ}+m\angle{ZXY}=180^{\circ}\) Substitution property of equality
\(70^{\circ}+m\angle{ZXY}=180^{\circ}\) Simplify
\(m\angle{ZXY}=110^{\circ}\) Subtraction property of equality
   

 

Thus, \(m\angle{X}=110^{\circ}\)
