Q:
# The measures of two complementary angles are 12q−9 and 8q+14 Find the measures of the angles.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:4 1/4Step-by-step explanation:Complementary angles add up to 90 degrees.Thus if 12q - 9 and 8q + 14 are complementary,12q - 9 + 8q + 14 = 90.Combining like terms, we get:20q + 5 = 9020q = 85Thus, q = 85/20, or 17/4, or 4 1/4
