An angle is equal to five times to its compliment. determine its measure.

let the angle be x.

since the sum of complimentary angles is 90 degree.

 its complement=(90-x).

according to question:

x=5(90-x)

x=450-5x

x+5x=450

6x=450, x=450/6=75

hence the required angle is 75 degree.

 Let the angle be x

It's compliment=90-x

By the given condition:-

5x=90-x

5x+x=90

6x=90

x=90/6

x=15

The measure of the angle is 15

  • 2

 and the measure of the other angle =  5x = 5 x 15 = 75

  • 0
