The supplement of an angle is 36 degrees less than twice the supplement of the complement of the angle. Find the measure of the supplement.
hmm confusing words...
Eeyup, this is the fourth time I've attempted this...
let the angle be x complement of the angle is 90 - x supplement of that is 180 -(90 - x) twice of that is 2[180 - (90 - x)] 36 degrees less than that is 2[180 - (90 - x)] - 36 <--this is the value of the supplement of the angle...this is what we're looking for \[\implies 2[180 - 90 + x] - 36\] \[\implies 2[90 + x] - 36\] \[\implies 180 + 2x - 36\] \[\implies 144 - 2x\] what does that mean?
