x = 6, y = 4

Step-by-step explanation:

The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect with each other at the point of intersection with equal sides across the point of intersection.

- DH = HF ⇒ x + 2 = 2y
- GH = HE ⇒ 4x - 3 = 5y + 1

x + 2 = 2y,

4x - 3 = 5y + 1

x = 2y - 2,

4(2y - 2) - 3 = 5y + 1

x = 2y - 2,

8y - 8 - 3 = 5y + 1

x = 2y - 2,

8y - 11 = 5y + 1

x = 2y - 2,

8y - 5y = 11 + 1

x = 2y - 2,

3y = 12

x = 2y - 2,

y = 4

x = 2*4 - 2,

y = 4

x = 6,

y = 4
