The measure of the supplement of an angle is 20 degrees more than three times the measure of the original angle. Find the measures of the angles.

The measures of an angle and its complement differ by 22 degrees. Find the measures of the angles.

**drwls**, Sunday, August 16, 2009 at 8:03pm1) 180 - A = 3A + 20

4A = 160

A = 40 degrees is the angle

2) 90 - A - A = 22

2A = 68

A = 34 degrees. The other angle (the complement) is 90 - 34 = 56 degrees

Even if you haven't studied algebra yet, I hope you can follow the logic
