Let x be the measure of one of the supplementary angles. The other angle's measure would be 180 - x, as supplementary angles add up to 180 degrees. Given that the difference in measure between the two angles is 36, we can set up the equation: (180 - x - x = 36) Solve for x: (180 - 2x = 36) (-2x = -144) (x = 72) So, one angle measures 72 degrees, and the other angle measures: (180 - 72 = 108) degrees.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
