Complementary angles sum to 90°. Supplementary angles sum to 180°. Given an angle x then the complement of x is 90 - x, and the supplement of x is 180 - x.

The question asks for the complement of (the supplement of (80 degrees) ). We have to find the supplement of 80 first, and then find the complement of the supplement. The supplement of an angle is (180 - the angle). The complement of an angle is (90 - the angle). The supplement of 80 degrees is (180 - 80) = 100 degrees. The complement of that supplement is (90 - 100) = -10 degrees.

Complement: 22 Supplement: 112

90 -y = complement 180 - y = supplement

It is 70 degrees because supplementary angles add up to 180 degrees

supplementary angles add up to 180 degrees complimentary angles add up to 90 degrees

Complementary angles add up to π/2 radians → the complement of π/3 is π/2 - π/3 = π/6 Supplementary angles add up to π radians → the supplement of π/3 is π - π/3 = 2π/3

There are two main uses. One is, in a complicated shape, to find the measure of an unknown angle using known values of other angles. The other is that trigonometric ratios are related to their supplement angles. Also, the sine of an angle is related to the cosine of of its complement.

Complementary angles: Two angles that add up to a right angle (90Â°). Each angle is complement of the other.For example, the complement of a 30Â° is 60Â° (90Â° - 30Â°).Supplementary angles: Two angles that add up to two right angles (180Â°). Each angle is supplement of the other.For example, the supplement of a 30Â° is 150Â° (180Â° - 30Â°).

complement: 90-67 = 23 degrees supplement = 180-67 = 113 degrees

complement: 90-23.5 = 66.5 degrees supplement: 180-23.5 = 156.5 degrees

yes complement is 90-angle and supplement 180-angle
