Dear student 
According to midpoint theorem 
MN = ½ BC 
So, 2x -5 = ½ (x+2) 
4x – 10 = x+ 2 
3x = 12 
x = 4 
ii). Angle AMN is appx equal to B 
So , 2y +5 = 3y -5 
y = 10

Dear student 
Angle B would be equal to 
30 -5 = 25 degree 
Hope this helps ….....................
Good Luck

hello student, once again the answer by vikas for the 2nd part is wrong and immature.
we know by mid pt theorem that angle B= angle AMN.
so, 2y+25 = 3y – 5
or y= 30
now, B= 3y – 5
= 90 – 5
or B= 85
kindly approve :)
