Found 2 solutions by checkley77, Alan3354:Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1N+9N=180 10N=180 N=180/10 N=18 1*18=18 DEGREES FOR THE SMALLER ANGLE. 9*18=162 DEGREES FOR THE LARGER ANGLE. PROOF: 18 + 162 = 180 Answer by Alan3354(31487)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The measure of 2 supplementary angles are in the ratio 1:9. Find the degree measure of the smaller angle. ---------------------- Supplementary angles add to 180º ------------ 1a + 9a = 180 a = 18 ---- Angles are 18º and 162º
