 Question 448043: find two supplementary angles such that the first angle is 15 more than two times the secondFound 2 solutions by solver91311, stanbon:Answer by solver91311(16877)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Solve for to get the measure of the second angle, then calculate to get the measure of the first angle. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it Answer by stanbon(57307)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!find two supplementary angles such that the first angle is 15 more than two times the second ---- x and 180-x are supplementary angles. --------- 180-x = 2x+15 -------------------- 3x = 165 --- x = 55 degrees --- 180-x = 125 degrees ===================================== Cheers, stan H. ===============================
