Two angles form a linear pair. The measure of one angle is 8 times the measure of the other angle. Find the measure of each angle.

angle 1= x
angle 2=8x
so 8x+x=180
9x=180
9x= 180 divided by 9 is 20 so
x=20
angle 1=20
angle 2=160
Hope it helps :)

this is just like the last one, but the angles sum to 180, instead of 90.
Take a stab at it and come on back if you have trouble.
