the measurement of an angle is 5times the measurement of its supplement.what is the measurement of the angle?

  • math -

    let the angle be Ø
    then its supplement is 180-Ø

    Ø = 5(180-Ø)
    Ø = 900 - 5Ø
    6Ø = 900
    Ø = 150

    so the angle is 150° and its supplement is 30°

    check:
    is 150 five times 30 ? , YES
