An angle measures 5 degrees more than 4 times its complement. What is the angle?

I understand that the formula would be 4x+5 degrees. Would this be the answer?

  • Geometry -

    The sum of complementary angles = 90. Let x = the smaller angle.

    x + 4x + 5 = 90

    5x = 85
    x = 17

    Larger angle = 90 - 17
