I posted this early, I don't understand the answer, Two angles are complementary. The sum of the measure of the first angle and one-fourth the second angle is 87.75 degrees. Find the measures of the angles? What is the measure of the smaller angle? What is the measure of the other angle. Both in degrees...

1. Let x be the first angle, and y be the second angle.

The angles are complementary, so x + y = 90.

"The sum of the measure of the first angle and one-fourth the second angle is 87.75 degrees. "

x + y/4 = 87.75
