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.

I think you need more information than that.

I think you mean 180 not 1800

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.

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

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

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

@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.

@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.
