 Question 499464: The supplement of an angle is 60 degrees less than twice the supplement of the complement of the angle.Answer by nerdybill(6948)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The supplement of an angle is 60 degrees less than twice the supplement of the complement of the angle. Let x = the angle then 90-x = complement of angle 180-x = supplement of angle 180-(90-x) = 90+x = supplement of complement of angle . 180-x = 2(90+x) - 60 180-x = 180+2x -60 -x = 2x -60 -x+60 = 2x 60 = 3x 20 degrees = x
