Much the same but angle 2 and the angle with measure 41 degrees are "supplementary angles", together they make a straight line. What is the degree measure of a straight line? And while "vertical angles" is the easiest way to get the measure of angle 3, note that it and angle 2 also form a straight line. What does that tell you about getting the measure of angle 3 from the now known measure of angle 2?
