    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.

    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?
