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.
