Ms. Sue
We'll be glad to check your answers.
Be sure you know what complementary and supplementary angles are. 
Bosnian
1)
6 y + 3° is first angle
4 y  13° is second angle
6 y + 3° + 4 y  13° = 180°
10 y  10° = 180°
10 y = 180° + 10°
10 y = 190°
y = 190° / 10
y = 19°
6 y + 3° = 6 ∙ 19° + 3° = 114° + 3° = 117°
4 y  13° = 4 ∙ 19°  13° = 76°  13° = 63°
117° and 63°
2)
x is first angle
x + 26° is second angle
x + x + 26° = 90°
2 x + 26° = 90°
2 x = 90°  26°
2 x = 64°
x = 64° / 2
x = 32°
32° is first angle
x + 26° = 32° + 26° = 58° is second angle
32° and 58°
