**Reiny**, Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 5:21pmTwice the measure of the "supplement of an angle" is 39 degrees less than five times the "complement of the angle".

just translate it into "math"

2(180-x) = 5(90-x) - 39

solving for x , I got x=17

check: the supplement of 17 is 163

twice that 163 is 326

the complement of 17 is 73

5 times that complement is 365

by how much is 326 less than 365 ???

YEAH!
