  1. first we represent the unknowns using variables:
    let x = measure of angle 4
    let 3x+4 = measure of angle 3 (from the second statement)
    then we set-up the equation. since the angles form a linear pair, their sum is equal to 180 degrees. therefore,
    x + 3x + 4 = 180
    4x + 4 = 180
    4x = 176
    x = 44 degrees (measure of angle 4)
    3x + 4 = 136 degrees (measure of angle 3)

    hope this helps~ :)
