This is a very nice problem.
What have you done towards solving it?
If you work on solving it, the you will learn a great deal.
However, you can wait for some unscrupulous helpers to give a “hand-in” ready complete solution.

3. I don't want the complete solution just guidance on where to start... I know that angles at a point always equal 360 degrees.

All right! And you have 5 fences coming together to form angles of x, 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x. So what's the relationship between 360 degrees and the sum of the above angles?

That is all that any of us can hope for.
