 Question 405184: Angles A and B are complementary angles. If the measure o angle A is 30 more than the measure of angle B. Find the measures of the two anglesAnswer by IWork4Dessert(60)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Complementary angles are angles whose values, when added together, equal 90º. Let angle A equal "x+30" and angle B equal "x", as the instructions state that angle A is thirty more than angle B. Now you create an equation using this. (x)+(x+30)=90 Combine your like terms, so your variables(x). 2x+30=90 Subtract the 30 from both sides, since the 30 is positive, to cancel it out. 2x=60 Divide both sides by 2 since the x has a coefficient, or number in front of it. You want to get the variable totally alone on one side of the equation. x=30 Now check the answer by putting it back into the equation. (30)+(30+30)=90 30+60=90 90=90 There's your answer. Hope this helps!
