Write and solve a system of equations to find the measures of the acute angles.Answer by fcabanski(874)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Call the smaller acute angle x and the larger y y=4x The sum of the interior angles in a triangle is 180 so x+y+90=180 and thus x+y=90. Solve by substitution. y=4x so x+4x=90 5x=90 x=18 y=4x=4(18)=72 If you need help understanding math so you can solve these problems yourself, then one on one online tutoring is the answer (\$30/hr).
