Supplementary angles: x + y = 180

From the problem, we can state that: y = (1/4)x

Substituting back to the first equation, we have:

x + (1/4)x = 180

(5/4)x = 180

x = ? (You can calculate this yourself)

As to find the supplementary angle, you can use the result for x by using the equation y = (1/4)x
