    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?
