 Question 649666: Part of my homework is to find a missing length(s) of triangles. They give us the formula for ONE missing side (ex. 2/3 = a/6), but the actual problems have two or more missing lengths. I'm not sure how to alter the formula I've been given. What is the formula for two missing lengths, or three missing lengths? I hope this isn't too general! Thank you SOOooo much! ;)! Click here to see answer by Alan3354(34677)

 Question 650690: The measure of an angle exceeds two times its supplement by 6. Find the measure of the angle. This is what I've done so far: 180 - x is its supplement and I let 90 - x be its complement 2(90 - x) 180 = 2(90 - x) + 6 174 = 2(-x + 90) = 0 -2(-x + 90) + 174 = 0 2x - 180 + 174 = 0 2x - 6 = 0 2x = 6 x = 3 Is this correct?
