The measure of (Angle) A is 4 degrees greater than the measure of (Angle) B. The two angles are complementary. Find the measure of each angle.

(I tried 41+45 but that didn't work out, anyone got any steps to solve this?)

  2. Ms. Sue, I'm very well aware a complementary angle is 90 degrees. But I need help with HOW to get 90. Should I just try various methods and guess?

  3. let the smaller be x
    then the larger is x+4

    so x + x+4 = 90
    2x = 86
    x = 43

    so how about 43 and 47.
    Did you skip that pair ? You knew the were only 4 apart, so just about equal and half of 90 is 45 , so ....

  4. OH WAIT, I tried this method.

    90 - 4 = 86/2 = 43 + 47

    Should I use this for future purposes?
