Mathematics

The difference between the supplement of an angle and the angle is $36^{\circ}$. The supplement is:

$108^{\circ}$

SOLUTION
Let the supplement be $x$
Sum of supplementary angles is ${ 180 }^{ \circ }$
$\therefore x+{ 36 }^{ \circ }={ 180 }^{ \circ }\\ \Rightarrow x={ 144 }^{ \circ }$
Difference between supplement and given angle $={ 144 }^{ \circ }-{ 36 }^{ \circ }={ 108 }^{ \circ }$
