Question

The larger of two supplementary angles exceeds the smaller by 28 degrees. Find the angles.

$\begin{array}{*{35}{l}} x\text{ }+\text{ }\left( x+28 \right)\text{ }=\text{ }180 \\ 2x\text{ }+\text{ }28\text{ }=\text{ }180 \\ 2x\text{ }=\text{ }180\text{ }-\text{ }28 \\ 2x\text{ }=\text{ }152 \\ x\text{ }=\text{ }76 \\ \end{array}$
