Among the 2 supplementary angles the measure of the largeer angle is 36 more than measure of the smaller one.Find their measures.

• Maths -

Since they are supplementary,
A + B = 180
and you also know that
A - B = 36
where A is the "measure of" the larger of the two angles.
By adding the two equations, you find that
2A = 216
A = 108
B = 72
