    Did you understand what was meant by a linear pair of angles?

    Ok - when anything is "linear" - it means a straight line (or 180 degrees). So if one of the angle is, say, 120 degrees, then the other has to be 60 degrees for them to form a linear pair (or a straight line). So, if one of the angles is obtuse (which means greater than 90 degrees), the other has to be less than 90 degrees to form a linear pair, or to add up to 180 degrees. Which means that the other angle has to be acute (less than 90 degrees). Let me know if this makes it clear, or if you'd like more help.
