The measures of two complementary angles are (14q+8)and 8q-6). Find the measures of the angles.

  • geometry - ,

    Two angles are complimentary if they add up to 90 degrees.

    So you can say that:

    (14q + 8) + (8q - 6) = 90

    You can then rearrange the equation to solve for q. Then sub q back into the individual equations to calculate the angles.

  • geometry - ,

    14q + 8 + 8q - 6 = 90
    22q + 2 = 90
    22q = 88
    q = 4

    14q + 8 = 64
    8q - 6 = 26

    64 + 26 = 90
