Find an angle such that 3 times the complement of the angle is 10 degrees less than the supplement of the angle.

I know that supplement means 180 and complement is 90. I don't know what kind of problem this is.

• Math -

3 (90-x)= (180-x) -10

270-3x= -1800+10x

2070=13x

Divide through by 13 and there it is. Translate what is given to something that you can use.

buddy, you equation is right but the answer is wrong
that should be 50

(180-x)-10
should be
180-x-10

thanks buddy
