• complement  90 – x
The angle is 57° more than twice its complement. angle x x x + 2x 3x x 2  comp + 57 2 (90 – x) + 57 180 – 2x + 57 180 + 57 237 79 = = = = = =  79°  11°
• Let: angle  x
• complement  90 – x
The angle is 275° less than four times its complement. angle x x x + 4x 5x x 4  comp – 275 4 (90 – x) – 275 360 – 4x – 275 360 – 275 85 17 = = = = = =  17°  83°
• Supplementary Angles
• Let: angle  x
• supplement  180 – x
The angle is 98 more than its supplement. angle x x x + x 2x x supp + 98 (180 – x) + 98 180 – x + 98 180 + 98 278 139 = = = = = =  139°  51°
• Let: angle  x
• supplement  180 – x
The angle is 74° less than its supplement. angle x x x + x 2x x supp – 74 (180 – x) – 74 180 – x – 74 180 – 74 106 53 = = = = = =  53°  127°
• Let: angle  x
• supplement  180 – x
The angle is twice its supplement. angle x x x + 2x 3x x 2  supp 2 (180 – x) 360 – 2x 360 360 120 = = = = = =  120°  60°
• Let: angle  x
• supplement  180 – x
The angle is 84° more than thrice its supplement. angle x x x + 3x 4x x 3  supp + 84 3 (180 – x) + 84 540 – 3x + 84 540 + 84 624 156 = = = = = =  156°  24°
• Let: angle  x
• supplement  180 – x
The angle is 123° less than twice its supplement. angle x x x + 2x 3x x 2  supp – 123 2 (180 – x) – 123 360 – 2x – 123 360 – 123 237 79 = = = = = =  79°  101°
• (mixed)
• Let: angle  x
• complement  90 – x
• supplement  180 – x
The supplement of an angle is 126° more than twice its complement. supp (180 – x) 180 – x – x + 2x x 2  comp + 126 2 (90 – x) + 126 180 – 2x + 126 180 + 126 – 180 126 = = = = =  126°  none  54

• Let: angle  x
• complement  90 – x
• supplement  180 – x
The sum of the complement and the supplement of an angle is 148°. comp + supp (90 – x) + (180 – x) 90 – x + 180 – x 90 + 180 – 148 122 61 148 148 148 x + x 2x x = = = = = =  61°  29°  119°
