Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you mean 180 not 1800

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Imagine it said one number is six more than twice the other number. Directrix  how did you know they are supplementary angles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay Directrix  I was not familiar with the "linear pair" vernacular. Thanks.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@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.
