    Unhappy 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.

    Thanks in advance. ♥
    Wendy, run away with me. I know this sounds crazy, but you see what you do to me.I wanna be your lost boy, your last chance.A better reality.

    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.

    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:
