The measures of two complementary angles are (14q+8)and 8q6). Find the measures of the angles.

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. 
14q + 8 + 8q  6 = 90
22q + 2 = 90
22q = 88
q = 4
14q + 8 = 64
8q  6 = 26
64 + 26 = 90
