right. so let us say one angle is A and the other angle is B

A : B = 1 : 9, right?

and A+B = 90. Are you with me?

ya i get you so far

good. so you have two equations A + B = 90 and A/B = 1/9

dhatradityaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
A / B = 1 / 9 => A = 9B

substitute A in the other equation and solve for B
