 Question 208017: Two angles are complementary if the sum of their measures is 90°. The measure of the first angle is 5° less than 4 times the second angle. Find the measure of the FIRST angle.Answer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x = second angle 4x-5 = first angle x + 4x-5 = 90 5x-5 = 90 5x=95 x=19 Second angle 4x-5 = First angle 4(19) - 5=76-5 = 71 = First angle Check: 19+71=90 R^2
