the measure of x is greater than four times the measure of a supplement to it. is this possible? if so, graph the possibilities for c on a number line. if not, explain why not.

The supplement of an angle x is 180°-x.

the measure of x is greater than four times the measure of a supplement to it.
=>
x>4(180°-x)
x>4*180°-4x
5x>720°
x>144°

Can you now graph x on a number line?
