The measure of one angle is 15 degrees more than half the measure of its complement. Find the measure of the two angles.

  • math -

    A = Compliment = X Deg.
    B = (X/2 + 15) Deg.

    The sum of complimentary angles = 90 Deg.
    X + (X/2+15) = 90 Deg.
    Multiply both sides by 2:
    2x + x + 30 = 180.
    3x = 180 - 30 = 150.

    X = 150 / 3 = 50 Deg.
    x/2 + 15 = 50/2 + 15 = 40 Deg.
