The supplementary angles are supplementary angles. Determine the measures of angle 1 and angle 2. angle 2=x angle 1 = 5x+6 This is what i came up with. <1+<2=180 I subtracted 6 from both sides.Divided by 5 and i came up with 34.8 degrees. < 1 = 5x+6 5(34.8)+6
180 degrees. I was just wondering because they both more than 180 degrees.

Henry,
A1 = (5x+6) Deg.
A2 = x Deg.
A1 + A2 = 180 Deg.
(5x+6) + x = 180
6x + 6 = 180
6x = 180  6 = 174
X = A2 = 29 Deg.
(5x + 6) = A1 = 5*29 + 6 = 151 Deg.
