Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1These are supplementary angles, as such the sum of their values will equal 180. \[(2x + 7) + (6x  9) = 180\] \[8x  2 = 180\] \[8x = 182\] \[x = 22.75\] The larger of the two angles (assuming the picture is correct) is (6x  9) Inserting the value of x we obtained we obtain \[6(22.75)  9 = 127.5\]
