I understand what complimentary and supplementary angles are, but I am confused on how to complete this problem. Please don't just give me the answer, I need to be able to explain how to do these types of problems.Answer by Earlsdon(6287)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let the angle be A, then its supplement is 180-A and its complement is 90-A. Simplify and solve for A. Add 3A to both sides. Subtract 180 from both sides. Divide both sides by 2. degrees.
