# The supplement of an angle is 15 degrees more than twice the measure of the angle itself. How do you find the angle?

the requested angle is 55 degrees

#### Explanation:

If x is the requested angle, you can say that its supplement is 180-x;
it also is 15+2x, or:

$180 - x = 15 + 2 x$

that is equivalent to:

$2 x + x = 180 - 15$

$3 x = 165$

$x = \frac{165}{3} = 55$
