1. It would help if you proofread your questions before you posted them. "Other angles"?

Let A = first angle and B = second angle.

A + B = 90º

A + B/2 = 83º

Subtract second equation from the first.

B/2 = 7º

B = 14º

Insert that value into the first equation and solve for A. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.

Complimentary angles add up to 90º So translate the English into Math. if you let the unknown angle be x then "the measure of the compliment of the angle" -----> 90-x "10 degrees less than three times the measure of the angle"
