 Question 394585: Two angles are complementary. One contains 30° more than the other. Find both angles.Answer by pie90010(44)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!let angle 1 be x let angle 2 be y since they are complimentary, they add up to 90, so we know x + y = 90° since one contains 30° more, we know x = y + 30° line them up x - y = 30° x + y = 90 the y's cancel 2x = 120 x = 60 now that you have x, plug it into the original equation to get y x + y = 90 y = 30 the answer is the 2 angles are 30, and 60
