Find the measures of two complementary angles if one angle is 18 degrees more than two times the other angle.
Denote the first angle as x and second as y (degrees). Complementary angles mean x + y = 90."One angle is 18 degrees more than two times the other angle" translates tox = 18 + 2*y.
Substitute this to the first equation we obtain18 + 3y = 90, 3y = 72, y = 24.So x = 18 + 2y = 66.
Answer: one angle is 24 degree and another is 66 degree.
always at your service:)
what about "besting" my answer? (it is the formal way to say "thank you" here)
