Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Rule: Two angles are said to be complementary when they add up to 90 degrees.

For example if angles x and y are complementary then

x + y  = 90

Let x = 12 degrees


12 + y =90

y = 90-12

y=78 degrees

y = 78 degrees is complement to x = 12 degrees

Please let me know if need to clarify further.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

okay, now I have one more question. probably not my last lol. its on interest. the question is: A woman has $27,000. part is invested for 1 year in a certificate of deposit paying 7% interest, and the remaining amount in a cash management fund paying 9%. the total interest on the two investements is $2,110. how much does she invest at each rate?

Certificate of deposit                                                                   Cash management fund

-------------------------------                                                               -----------------------------

r=7/100=0.07                                                                               r=9/100=0.09

Amount invested = x                                                                Amount invested = (27000-x)

I_c=interest earned=P *r * t

                                =x * 0.07*1=0.07x                             I_m = (27000-x)*0.09*1=2430-0.09x

Now total interest I = I_c + I_m=2110

0.07x +2430-0.09x = 2110

-0.02x = 2110-2430=-320



Invested $16000 in Certificate of deposit                        Invested =$ 27000-16000 = $ 11000 in cash 

                                                                                         management fund

Please let me know if you need any clarification.
