Geometry

A pair of complimentary angles have measure x* (star equals degree) and x*(again star equals degree) + 8*. What is the measure of the smaller angle?

the problems looks like x* and x*+8*

AGAIN THE stars stand for degree.
I think the answer is 6, but not sure how.

  1. Complimentary angles add up to 90*. so 90-8=82 and 82/2 (b/c there's 2 x's) is 41. so the two angles are 41 and 49, the smaller one being 41*.
