**Reiny**, Monday, May 16, 2011 at 8:17pmlet the angle be x

then its supplement is 180 - x

and its compliment is 90-x

angle's supplement is 50 more than 5 times its compliment

180-x = 5(90-x) + 50

180-x = 450 - 5x + 50

4x = 320

x = 80

the angle described is 80°

check:

the supplement is 100

the compliment is 10

is 100 fifty more than 5 times 10 ?

YES!
