  2. 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°
