ineedyouubiebs 2 years ago Two angles form a linear pair. The measure of one angle is six more than twice the measure of the other angle. Find the measure of each angle.

That's all that's given

7. Directrix

We do not need anything else given.

8. ineedyouubiebs

I think you mean 180 not 1800

9. Directrix

Let x be one of the two supplementary angles. The other is 6 + 2x. Supplementary angles sum to 180. x + 6 + 2x = 180 @ineedyouubiebs --> Solve for x and post what you get.

10. wolf1728

Imagine it said one number is six more than twice the other number. Directrix - how did you know they are supplementary angles?

11. ineedyouubiebs

x=58 degrees

12. Directrix

@wolf1728 "Two angles form a linear pair." --> That is how it is known that the angles are supplementary.

13. ineedyouubiebs

Now what do I do?

14. Directrix

@ineedyouubiebs x=58 degrees CORRECT

15. wolf1728

Okay Directrix - I was not familiar with the "linear pair" vernacular. Thanks.

16. Directrix

@ineedyouubiebs So one angle is 58. The other is 180 - 58 = ? Or, you can find it by cranking out six more than twice the measure of the other angle. That is, 6 + 2*58 = ? Same thing.

17. Directrix

@wolf1728 Unkle mentioned the double factorial theorem or rule the other night. I had never heard of that. I think he said that 5!! = 5 * 3 * 1 and I'm thinking "What???" So, no worries on linear pair.

18. ineedyouubiebs

Ohhhh I get it now! Thanks @Directrix :D

19. Directrix

Did you get 122?

20. ineedyouubiebs

Yup! I did :)
