Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let the angle be x. then complement of that = 90x so, 4 times of complement = 4(90x) 2/3 of original angle's supplement= 2/3 (180x) so, 4(90x)= 2/3 (180x) cross multiply: 12(90x) = 360  2x 12*90  12x = 360  2x 1080 360= 12x2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0angle is x complement is 90  x supplement is 180  x Now we follow the directions: 4 times the measure of the complement means 4(90  x) that is equal to 2/3 of the supplement which means (2/3)(180  x) \(4(90  x) = \dfrac{2}{3}(180  x) \)
