Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Write an equation, then solve it. Let x be the measure of the supplement. 3 times the supplement is 3x 40 deg less than 3 times the supplement is 3x  40 The angle measures 3x  40 and the supplement measures x. The measures of supplementary angles add up to 180, so 3x  40 + x = 180 Solve this equation for x. This is the measure of the supplement. Then plug in the value of x into 3x  40 to find the measure of the angle.
