Please explain in detail so I know for next time.

Two angles are complementary. The sum of the measure of the first angle and one-fourth the second angle is 62.25 degrees. Find the measures of the angles.

What is the measure of the smaller angle?

What is the measure of the other angle?

A+B=90

A+ 1/4 * B =62.25

I would solve by subtracting the second equation from the first.

**drwls**, Thursday, November 19, 2009 at 12:29amI would take Bob Pursley's suggestion.

That would leave you with

(3/4) B = 27.75

One more step, multiplying both sides by 4/3, will lead to the answer.

We are not going to do all the work for you.
