No they both equal to 90 degrees
and the other says, "Thanks, you look quite good yourself" ? Is that what you mean by they compliment each other?
okay good.
that means they add up to 90 degrees, correct?
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
A / B = 1 / 9 => A = 9B
substitute A in the other equation and solve for B
