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.
