Find the measures of the angle and its supplement. -------------------------------------- Let the angle be "x"; its supplement is "180-x" -------------------------------------- EQUATION: 180-x = 2x+12 3x = 168 x = 56 degrees (the angle) 180-x = 124 degrees (the supplement) ===================================== Cheers, Stan H.
