Find the measures of the angles.Answer by cleomenius(959)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x + x - 36 = 180 degrees 2x - 36 = 180 degrees 2x = 144. x= 72 degress x =72 degrees. This is the smaller angle. 108 degrees, this is the larger angle. 72 + 36 = 108 degrees. This does check. Cleomenius.
