Find the measure of two complementary angles if the measure of one angle is 5/8 the measure of the other. What is the measure of the larger angle? and the samller

1. Two complementary angle sum up to give 90 degrees.

Angle 1 = x
Angle 2 = (5/8)x

x + (5/8)x = 90

Solve for x

2. x + 5 x/8 = 90
8 x + 5 x = 720
13 x = 720
x = 55.38
5x/8 = 34.62
