**Reiny**, Sunday, March 15, 2009 at 10:53pm"Two angles are complementary" ---> x + y = 90

"The sum of the measure of the first angle and one-fourth of the second angle is 69 degrees" ---> x + (1/4)y = 69

or

4x + y = 276

-----------------------------

4x + y = 276

x + y = 90

subtract them etc.
