Supplementary angles has the sum of the two angles that equal 180 degrees, while complementary angles have the sum of 90 degrees between two angles.

Complementary angles sum to 90º, like 30º + 60º. Supplementary angles sum to 180º, like 45º and 135º.

SUPPLEMENTARY ANGLES = the sum of the two angles are 180

WHILE

COMPLEMENTARY ANGLES= the sum of the two angles are 90
