If it's a parallelogram, then opposite sides are equal in length. So:

$\displaystyle 5y=2y+18$

and...

$\displaystyle 3x-7=2x+9$

See if you can take it from here. Post your working if you get stuck.

Edit: Remember that the**angles**within a quadrilateral sum to $\displaystyle 360$, not the lengths of the sides! - Mar 14th 2011, 04:39 PMvaironxxrd
How could i forget that, thanks allot.. I can't believe this afternoon I was doing good on it and now I forgot about it thinking about Outside angles which add up to 360 Thanks.. here are my answers
