the angles complementary and the smaller angle is 40 degrees less than measure of the larger

  • math -

    complementary angles add up to 90°
    so if the smaller is x
    then the other angle is 90-x

    x = 90-x - 40
    2x = 50
    x = 25

    so smaller is 25° and the larger is 90-25 = 64°

    check: is 25 less than 65 by 40 ? YEAHHHH!
