## Problem

Find the degree measure of an angle whose complement is 25% of its supplement.

$\mathrm{(A) \ 48 } \qquad \mathrm{(B) \ 60 } \qquad \mathrm{(C) \ 75 } \qquad \mathrm{(D) \ 120 } \qquad \mathrm{(E) \ 150 }$

## Solution

### Solution 1

We can create an equation for the question, $4(90-x)=(180-x)$

$360-4x=180-x$

$3x=180$

After simplifying, we get $x=60 \Rightarrow \mathrm {(B)}$

### Solution 2

Let $c$, $s$ be the degree measures of the complementary and supplementary angle, respectively. Given that \$c = \frac{1}{4}s.
