The sum measures of the first angel and half of the second angel is 64 degrees. find the measurments of angels.Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15746)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!two angels are complementary. A + B = 90 The sum measures of the first angel and half of the second angel is 64 degrees. A + .5B = 64 : Subtract the 2nd eq from the 1st eq: A + B = 90 A +.5B =64 ------------subtraction eliminates A, find B .5B = 26 B = 2*26 B = 52 degrees then A = 90 - 52 A = 38 degrees : : Check this 38 + .5(52) = 64
