Find an angle such that 3 times the complement of the angle is 50 degrees greater than the supplement of the angle. . Two things you need to know: If two angles are supplementary, the sum of the two angles = 180. If two angles are complementary, the sum of the two angles = 90. . Let x = the angle then 90-x = complement of angle 180-x = supplement of angle . 3(90-x) = (180-x) + 50 270-3x = 180-x+50 270-3x = 230-x 270 = 230+2x 40 = 2x 20 degrees = x
