Find the measures of two supplementary angles if the difference of their measures is 56 degrees

I know supplementary angles are the sum of the measure if two angles is 180 degrees but then what is the question asking?

  • Math -

    it's asking what the measure of each angle is. subtract 56 from 180, divide by 2, add 56 to one of them, and that's your answer

  • Math -

    Rose's English sentence translated into "math" ...
    x -(180-x) = 56

    x - 180 + x = 56
    2x = 236
    x = 118

  • Math -

    Two complementary angles are such that one is seventeen times larger than the other. Find the two angles.

  • Math -

    17x+x=90
    18x=90
    x=90/18=5
    then 1st angle=5 then 2nd angle=85
