The measure of an angle's complement is 24 less than twice the measure of the angle. Find the measure of the angle and its complement.

a. 38, 52
b. 54, 36
c. 68, 112
d. 112, 68

(90-x)=2x-24
Looks like (a) to me

2. Henry

angle A = X degree,
angle B = 2x-24 degrees,
A + B = 90o,
x + (2x-24) = 90,
X = 38o,
2x-24 = 2*38 - 24 = 52o.
