Two angles are complementary.The sum of the first angle and half the second angle is 82 degrees. Find the measures of the angles.
What is the measure of the smaller angle?
What is the measure of the other angle?
complentary angles add up to 90
so if one angle is x, the other must be 90-x
so (90-x) + (1/2)x = 90
should be easy to solve for x
