What is the difference between a complementary angle and supplementary angle?

The sum of complementary angles is 90°. The sum of supplementary angles is 180°. EXAMPLE : 27° is the complementary angle to 63° and the supplementary angle to 153°.

How do you find complementary and supplementary angles?

Complementary angles are found by subtracting a random angle from 90 degrees for complementary always and 180 for supplementary always

What is the relationship between complementary and supplementary angles?

For any given angle, its supplementary angle is 90 degrees larger than its complementary angle.

Can a supplementary angle be a complementary angle?

A supplementary angle can not be a complementary angle. The complementary angle has 2 angles equal 90... but a supplementary angle is X2 that much (108). * * * * * Nearly correct. 90 x 2 is 180, not 108!

What do you call two supplementary angles?

a complementary angle

How do you remember the difference between complementary and supplementary angles?

Complementary angles are 90 degree angles while supplementary angels are 180 degree angles.You remember it by how complementary angle are 90 degrees more to get a supplementary angles.

Can an obtuse angle be both complementary and supplementary?

No, an obtuse angle cannot be both complementary and supplementary because the measures of complementary angles add up to 90 degrees, while the measures of supplementary angles add up to 180 degrees. An obtuse angle has a measure greater than 90 degrees, so it can only be supplementary, not complementary.

What are the methods used to compute the measures of complementary and supplementary angles?

The methods are subtraction. -- Subtract an angle from 90° to find its complementary angle. -- Subtract an angle from 180° to find its supplementary angle.

What has an angle that measures 90-180 degrees?


What is the complementary angle of 140 degrees?

No angle can be complementary to a 140 degree angle, as the sum of complementary angles is 90 degrees. But angles which are supplementary to each other add together to form a 180 degree angle.

What is a supplementary and complementary angle?

A complementary angle is an angle that when added to another angle creates a 90o angle. A supplementary angle is an angle that when added to another angle creates a 180o angle.

What 2 angles make a right angle?

two supplementary angles * * * * * NO! Supplementary angles sum to 180 degrees = 2 right angles. The correct answer is complementary angles.
