Why am I still not getting this one even after going back through websites and notes?

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.
