Use the theorems of parallel lines to solve for x in the following.
These lines are parallel, so once we draw a line through both of them those to angles are the same
we see that -8 and 3 are the roots as they add up to -5 and multiply to -24
there fore (x+8)(x-3)=0
however we notice when we plug in negative eight. The second angle gives a negative value, so therefore 3 is the answer
