If the supplement of a certain angle is six times the measure of the complement of that certain angle, then what is the measure of that certain angle?

A. 36°

B. 50°

C. 56°

D. 60°

E. 72°

Simply note that the supplement would be 90 degrees more than the complement and this would account for 5 times the complement.

So the complementary angle would be 90/5 = 18 degrees

Hence that certain angle must be 90 - 18 = 72 degrees

Answer (E)
