If one angle measures 45° less than twice the measure of its supplement, find the measure of each angle.Answer by jim_thompson5910(28598)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!"Two angles are supplementary" means that two angles, say 'x' and 'y', add up to 180 degrees. So . Basically, these two angles form a straight line. In addition, since "one angle measures 45° less than twice the measure of its supplement", we know that . Once you have the second equation, plug it into the first to get . I'll let you solve for 'x'. Once you have a solution for 'x', plug it into to find the solution for 'y'.
