Explanation

From the figure, note that r° + s° must equal 180°. Therefore \(\frac{r}{(r+s)}=\frac{r}{180}\). Since you are also given in the question that \(\frac{r}{(r+s)}=\frac{5}{8}\), you can conclude that \(\frac{r}{180}=\frac{5}{8}\). Thus \(r = \frac{5*180}{8} = 112.5\), and the correct answer is 112.5.
