This problem is not very well expressed, but let's assume that the two anglesOriginally Posted byjim1174

add up to 180 degrees.

Let the angles be and . Then we have by assumption:

.

Now translation the question into an equation (assume is the first angle):

.

Now , which can be substituted into the above

equation to give:

,

So:

,

hence , and .

So the large angle is
