The measure of the supplement of an angle is one fourth the measure of the angle. What is the measure of each angle?

  • Geometry -

    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
