Two angles are complementary. The sum of the measure of the first angle and half the second angle is 68 degrees. Find the measures of the angles:
What is the measure of the smaller angle?
What is the measure of the other angle?

"Two angles are complementary."
If one angle is x, the other angle is 90x.
"The sum of the measure of the first angle and half the second angle is 68 degrees."
x + (1/2)(90x)=68
Solve for x, and hence find 90x.
