Q:
# Two angles are complementary. The first angle is 2X degrees. The second angle is X +30° determine the larger angle

Accepted Solution

A:

complimentary angles, when added = 90 degrees

2x + x + 30 = 90

3x + 30 = 90

3x = 90 - 30

3x = 60

x = 60/3

x = 20

2x ..... 2(20) = 40

x + 30 ....20 + 30 = 50 <=== larger angle

2x + x + 30 = 90

3x + 30 = 90

3x = 90 - 30

3x = 60

x = 60/3

x = 20

2x ..... 2(20) = 40

x + 30 ....20 + 30 = 50 <=== larger angle
