    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.

    @ineedyouubiebs x=58 degrees CORRECT

    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.
