Find the measure of the greater angle.Answer by amoresroy(333)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x = the measure of the smaller angle 180-x = the measure of the greater angle x = (1/2)(180-x) 2x = 180 - x 3x = 180 x = 60 Greater angle = 180 - x = 180 - 60 = 120 The measure of the greater angle is 120 degrees.
