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
