    Easy Complementary / Supplementary Angles

    "The supplement of an angle is 60 degrees less than twice the supplement of the complement of the angle. Find the measure of the complement."

    It's always the simplest questions that get me. Any help is much appreciated!

    180 - x = 2(180 - (90 - x)) - 60. Solve for x and then get the complement of x.
