Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Call the angles A and B, A + B = A  B + 116 The sum of the two angles is 116 greater than the difference of the two angles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You get A + B = 180 180 = A  B + 116  A + B = 180 A  B = 64 add the two equations to solve  2A = 244 > A = 122
