# The difference in the measures of two complementary angles is 12°.find the measures of the angles.

let the smaller no. be x

therefore bigger no. = x +12

complementary angle = 90

therefore the 2 angles are = x + x +12 = 90

2x + 12 = 90

2x = 90 - 12 = 78

2x = 78

therefore x = 78 / 2 = 39

therefore x + 12 = 39 + 12 = 51

therefore two angles are 39 and 51

hope it helped u............

a+b=90

a-b=12

a=12+b

now 12+b+b

12+2b=90

2b=90-12

2b=78

b=78/2=39

a=12+39=51

a=51 , b=39
