    3x + 12 = x + 44 2x = 32 x = 16 degrees.

    Then put x back in to both equations and find the measures of both the angles.

    linear pair means the sum of the angles is 180. (3x + 12) + (x + 44) = 180 solve x.

    don't forget to sub the value in (3x + 12) and (x + 44) to get the measures of the two angles.
