Since these two measurements are supplementary, set both of them equal to 180

Therefore, (6x - 4) + (8x - 12) = 180

so I can just add them together and use algebra to find x? 14x-16=180 14x=164 x = 11.7142857142857

Now, x is equal to 11.71. You have to plug it back into the given measurements as "x" to get their degrees

No no, you're on the right track. Just needed to fulfill some additional steps. Great work! ;)

it's 14x-16=180 14x = 196 x = 14

Ah there we go. My mistake I did not point that out! =P Now, you can plug them into the original measurements to conclude to your final answer ;)
