College Algebra

Why am I still not getting this one even after going back through websites and notes?

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?

A+B=90
A+ 1/4 * B =62.25

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

  1. I would take Bob Pursley's suggestion.
    That would leave you with
    (3/4) B = 27.75

    One more step, multiplying both sides by 4/3, will lead to the answer.

    We are not going to do all the work for you.
