(2x+ 10) degrees EQUATION 1.) 37+c=90 2.) 48+c=90 3.) 20+c=90 4.) x+c=90 5.) _______ COMPLEMENT 1.) 53 degrees 2.) 42 degrees 3.) 70 degrees 4.) ________ 5.) ________ In equation number 1, I just transposed 37 to the right and then I subtract 37 to 90 that's how I got 53 degrees as the complement of the angle measure. But I just couldn't figure out question number 4 and number 5. There are more Questions but I already answered them I just gave Numbers 1,2,and 3 as examples that you can base on.Found 2 solutions by MathLover1, richard1234:Answer by MathLover1(6623)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!

(2x+ 10)=90 COMPLEMENT 1.) 53 degrees 2.) 42 degrees 3.) 70 degrees 4.) __c=90-x ___-------x=0 because it should be added to 90 to get 90 5.) ___2x+ 10=90 _____2x=90-10---2x=80......x=40 In equation number 1, I just transposed 37 to the right and then I subtract 37 to 90 that's how I got 53 degrees as the complement of the angle measure. But I just couldn't figure out question number 4 and number 5. Answer by richard1234(5390)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Just subtract each angle from 90. The fact that there are variables shouldn't make it any harder. 4: Complement = 90 - x 5: Complement = 90 - (2x + 10) = 80 - 2x
