The measure of an angle is 4 times the measure of its complement. What is the measure of the angle's supplement?

5x = 90
x = ? 
18

18 is the complementary angle. Now find the supplementary angle.
18 + X = 180

let the angle be x
then its complement is 90x
x = 4(90x)
x = 360  4x
5x = 360
x = 72
so the angle is 72°
and its supplement is 18072 = 108°
check:
our angle = 72
its complement = 18
is the angle 4 times its complement ?
is 72 = 4(18) ? yes
