Supplementary angles add up to 180 degrees. Let x be the number of units so we have 7x and 8x. Then

7x+8x=180

15x=180

x=12

So the two angles are 7(12)=**84** and 8(12)=**96.**

gs85 has the correct answer....here is another way to solve it

Angle 1 is 7/(7+8) = 7/15 of the total the other angle is 8/15

supplementary angles add to 180^{o} : 7/15 * 180 = 84^{o} 8/15 x 180 = 96^{o}
