 Question 26720: Two angles are complementary. One angle is 15 degrees more than 2 times the other. Find the angles.Answer by longjonsilver(2297)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!complementary angles add to 90. so let x=one angle other angle is 15+2x so x + 15+2x = 90 3x + 15 = 90 3x = 75 x = 75/3 x = 25 degrees and other angle is therefore 65 jon.
