Last one I need help on:

The measure of one angle is 38 degrees less than the measure of its supplement. Find the measure of each angle.

  • Math (Please help immediately) -

    x+y=180
    y= x+38
    x+(x+38)= 180
    2x+38=180
    -38 =-38
    2x = 142

    x= 71

    plug it in equation

    71+71+38= 180

    angle 1 = 71
    angle 2 = 109
