    An angle plus its complement must equal 90 degrees. Could you now find the complement of 40 degrees?

    Would 40+50 = 90?

    Two angles are complementary if there sum is \(90^\circ\)

    Well then, they must be complements. Very good. And welcome.

    how do I figure out the measurement of the supplement?

    An angle plus its supplement must equal 180 degrees.

    Sum is \( 180^\circ \implies \) supplementary.

    so if the angle measurement is 10degrees, the supplement is 170? 180-10?

    what is a supplementary angle?

    If an angle is 30 degrees the supplementary angle is 150. It is just another way of referring to the supplement.

    The same way you find the supplement. What is the supplement of 60 degrees?

    i have to draw two intersecting lines. Then i have to label the vertical, adjacent and the supplementary angles.

    Vertical angles: 1 and 3 2 and 4 Supplementary angles: 1 and 2 3 and 4 1 and 4 2 and 3 Adjacent angles 1 and 2 1 and 4 3 and 4 2 and 3

    adjacent angles have a common side between them. Supplementary angles make a straight angle (180 degrees is a straight angle)
