The measure of one angle is three times the measure of its complement. Find the measure of each angle.

  • Math (Please help immediately) -

    You know complementary angles add up to 90 degrees so
    let x = one angle
    let 3x = the other angle

    x + 3x = 90
    4x = 90
    x = 22.5 degrees

    so one angle (x) is 22.5 and the other (3x) is (3 x 22.5) = 67.5
