The angle with measurements of 148 degrees lies on a straight line, which means it's supplementanry angle is: 180 - 148 = 32 Since the angle of 2x - 16 and 32 lie on a straight line, their angle sum equals 180: 2x + 16 + 32 = 180 To solve this equation for x, we type it in our math engine and we get: x = 66
