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. Hope this helps! Good Luck in your studies!!
