Solution :-

∠ P + ∠ Q = 180° (Angles on the same side of transversal)

∠ P + 130° = 180°

∠ P = 50°

∠ R + ∠ S = 180° (Angles on the same side of transversal)

90° + ∠ R = 180°

∠ S = 90°

Yes. There is one more method to find the measure of m∠ P.

m∠ R and m∠ Q are given. After finding m∠ S, the angle sum property of a quadrilateral can be applied to find m∠ P.
