Angles A and B are complementary. Angle A has a measure of 2X - 8. Angle Bhas a measure of 36. What is the value of X?

if angles A and B are complementary, that means they add up to 90 degrees.

 

so we can create this equation:

 

2X - 8 + 36 = 90

2X + 28 = 90

2X = 90 - 28

2X = 62

X = 31

 

 

hope this helped! please let me know if you have any follow-up questions. smiley
