Not really, but...

How do I convert this into an equation?

A. An angle is 62 degrees larger than its supplement. Find the angle.

B. An angle exceeds 3/10 of its supplement by 11 degrees. Find the supplement.

I missed math class today to watch a brass quintet play and I got back just in time to receive the homework -.-

Ahahah nicely done.

Wouldn't have a clue though mate.


Ha thanks.

Since it's a supplement it would have to equal....180 I think

so do x + (x+62) = 180

and then x + (.3x+11) = 180 and solve for x

I tried that but it didn't really come out right, as it needed to be a 3 digit number instead of 2. (It's a crossnumber puzzle)

Whatever I'll just ****ing guess for now and then tell my math teacher that I didn't understand how to do it.

Thanks for the help though.

thats right. supplementary angles = 180 degrees

I'm pretty sure that's it, I might be wrong tho, I haven't taken a math class in almost two years

Not according to the worksheet.

The answer is supposed to equal a three digit number.

x + (x+62)= 180
x + x + 62 = 180
2x = 118
x= 59

59 =/= 3 digit number

well, for part A when you have x+(x+62)=180, and you have to find the angle, you get x=59 ( ithink, dont have a calculator), which is two digits, but it asks for the other angle, so 59+68, which equals 127, which is three digits, right?

Ahh so I was missing a piece of the puzzle.

Thanks!

I'm gonna get off to do the rest of the work and then to bed.

I guess this thread is useless now unless you guys want to converse about the joys of geometry
