**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 7:48pm18 is the complementary angle. Now find the supplementary angle.

18 + X = 180

**Reiny**, Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 8:02pmlet the angle be x

then its complement is 90-x

x = 4(90-x)

x = 360 - 4x

5x = 360

x = 72

so the angle is 72°

and its supplement is 180-72 = 108°

check:

our angle = 72

its complement = 18

is the angle 4 times its complement ?

is 72 = 4(18) ? yes
