what is the value of x when the triangle is 90 degrees and the y value is 79 degress

If the right angle = 2x, then x = 45 degrees.
left acute angle = x = 45 degs
-------
That makes the sum of the angles
90 + 45 + 51 = 186 degrees
That won't work. 

 

The triangle goes as 
right angle = 2x
top acute angle of triangle = 51
left acute angle = x

Triangle Angle Sum Theorem: Angle A + Angle B + Angle C = 1800

Angle 1 = 90o

Angle 2 = 79o

Angle 3 = 180 - 90 - 79 = 11o

Angle 3 is x, as the other 2 angles are given.

Therefore: x = 11o
