Two supplementary angles are such that one is 14 times larger than the other. Find the two angles. (Enter solutions from smallest to largest.)

• intermediate algebra -

let x = first angle
let 180-x = second angle
then we set up the equation,
14x = 180-x
14x + x = 180
15x = 180
x = 12 degrees
180-x = 168 degrees

hope this helps~ :)
