Two antles are complimentary. The sum of the measure of the first angle and half the second angle is 83. Find measure of angles.
What is the measure of the smaller angle?
What is the measure of the other angles?
It would help if you proofread your questions before you posted them. "Other angles"?
Let A = first angle and B = second angle.
A + B = 90º
A + B/2 = 83º
Subtract second equation from the first.
B/2 = 7º
B = 14º
Insert that value into the first equation and solve for A. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
