1. ## Could Someone Help Me With This? I Don't Know How To Start It...

The problem says:

"Find the measures of two supplementary angels, angle N and angle M, if the measure of angle N is 5 less than 4 times the measure of angle M."

That's the exact wording, and there's no diagram to go with it. If someone could help me, that'd be great.

That's the problem, I don't know how to start it. All I have written down is:
N=4M-5
and I don't even know if that's the right thing to have down.

4. Oh, never mind, I think I got it.

n=4m-5
m+4m-5=180
5m-5=180
5m=185
m=37o

n=4(37)-5
n=148-5
n=143
o

Thanks anyway, though! c:
