Please explain in detail so I know for next time.

Two angles are complementary. The sum of the measure of the first angle and one-fourth the second angle is 62.25 degrees. Find the measures of the angles.
What is the measure of the smaller angle?
What is the measure of the other angle?

asked by LeAnn/Please help me
  1. A+B=90
    A+ 1/4 * B =62.25

    I would solve by subtracting the second equation from the first.
