<div class="hints">
<p>From the diagram, we see that <code><var>ANGLE_BOT</var></code> and <code><var>ANGLE_TOP</var></code> are supplementary angles.</p>
<p>Therefore, <code>m <var>ANGLE_BOT</var> + m <var>ANGLE_TOP</var> = 180^\circ</code>.</p>
<p>Thus, <code>m <var>ANGLE_TWO</var> = 180^\circ - m <var>ANGLE_ONE</var> = 180^\circ - <var>ANGLE</var>^\circ = <var>180 - ANGLE</var>^\circ</code>.</p>
