the opposite angles of a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle are supplementary (add to 180º)In this quadrilateral, the point O and the point P are opposite to each other, that is to say, that add up to 180 degreesSo, Or+Q=180x+17 + 6x-5 =1807x+12=1807x=168x=24you are trying to find the measure of the angle ROP, and this is the same as the angle Or which was given to x+17But now you know that x is 24 degrees, so x+17 = 24+17 = 41 degrees
