The measure of the angle's supplement is 44 less than the measure of the angle. find the measure of the angle's supplement.
Step 1. Let x be the measure of the angle
Step 2. Let 180-x be the supplement of the angle where by definition when the sum of two angles = 180 then they are supplementary to each other.
Step 3. Given,
based on the problem statement that the supplement 180-x is 44 less than angle x.
Now add x+44 to both sides to isolate x in one side.
Step 4. Angle x=112 and its supplement is 180-112=68. Note the supplement of 68 is 44 less than the angle 112.
