Find the measures of two supplementary angles if the difference of their measures is 56 degrees
I know supplementary angles are the sum of the measure if two angles is 180 degrees but then what is the question asking?

it's asking what the measure of each angle is. subtract 56 from 180, divide by 2, add 56 to one of them, and that's your answer

Rose's English sentence translated into "math" ...
x (180x) = 56
x  180 + x = 56
2x = 236
x = 118

Two complementary angles are such that one is seventeen times larger than the other. Find the two angles.

17x+x=90
18x=90
x=90/18=5
then 1st angle=5 then 2nd angle=85
