 Supplementary Angles:  Supplementary angles are two angles whose sum is 180 degrees.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy leans at a 5.5 degree angle. On the right side of the picture, the tower makes an 84.5 degree angle with the ground. On the left side, the tower makes a 95.5 degree angle with the ground. Those two angles are supplementary because their sum is 180 degrees.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa leans at an angle to form supplementary angles.
