"Two angles are complemantary.one angle measures 14 degrees lesa than twice the other.Find the measure of the two angles".
I need help please...

  • geometry -

    let one angle be x, then the other is 90-x

    "one angle measures 14 degrees lesa than twice the other"
    ---> 90-x -14= 2x
    76 = 3x
    x = 76/3 ° or 25.3333°

    the other is 90-25.3333 = 64.666667°

    check:
    is 2(25.33333) less than 64.66666 by 14 ?? YES
