Let us draw a line XY parallel to ST and passing through point R.

PQR + QRX = 180º (Co-interior angles on the same side of transversal QR)

110º + QRX = 180º

QRX = 70º


RST + SRY = 180º (Co-interior angles on the same side of transversal SR)

130º + SRY = 180º

SRY = 50º

XY is a straight line. RQ and RS stand on it.

QRX + QRS + SRY = 180º

70º + QRS + 50º = 180º

QRS = 180º − 120º = 60º
