Supplementary Angles

Supplementary Angles

How to solve supplementary angles problems: formula, example, and its solution.

Example

If angle ABC and angle DEF are supplementary angles, find the value of x. The measure of angle ABC = 4x + 92, The measure of angle DEF = 6x + 38.

Supplementary angles are angles
whose sum of the angle's measures is 180.

It says these two angles are supplementary.
So (4x + 92) + (6x + 38) = 180.

The differece between supplementary angles
and a linear pair is that
a linear pair has to be adjacent.
