Two angles are complementary if the sum of their measures is 90°. The measure of the first angle is 5° less than 4 times the second angle. Put the measure of the FIRST angle in Blank 1 and the measure of the SECOND angle in Blank 2. Just write the number, do NOT write the word "degrees".
Let x = second angle, then 4x - 5 = first angle.
Therefore, x + 4x - 5 = 90
Solve for x.
