I assume that we have two lines, l and m, that are parallel. The lines are cut by a transversal t creating 8 numbered angles. Since angle 2 and angle 7 are not congruent, they must be supplementary.

Then `m/_2+m/_7=180`

But we know `m/_7=2m/_2` Substituting we get:






The measure of angle 7 is 120 degrees.
