#1) Not a clue. There must be more to the problem.

#2) Assuming there is an angle X that they are talking about.
The supplement S is 180-X.
S-78=X so
180-X-78=X

Neither do we. As the tutor mentioned, there must be more to the problem. For instance, is the tutor's guess that "there is an angle X that they are talking about" correct?

Please provide the full text of and instructions to this exercise. Thank you.
