## OH_HOT_DAMN 3 years ago TRUE OR FALSE If two angles are complements of the same angle, then they are equal in mesaure

1. JakeV8

Have any ideas?

2. pitankar

statement is true.

3. OH_HOT_DAMN

but how do u KNOW that?

4. OH_HOT_DAMN

i thought it was false because if the two 90 degree angles come from one point, the sum would be 180

5. JakeV8

@pitankar That does qualify as an idea but not an explanation :)

6. pitankar

angles which add up to 90 are complementary, thus 90-a and 90-b then a =b. where a and be are compliments to the same angle.

7. JakeV8

If something is a complement of an angle, then it is equal 90 minus original angle. If the other angle is also a complement, it equals the same thing.

@pitankar has it right above...

CONGRUENT COMPLEMENT THEOREM: If two angles are complements of the same angle (or of congruent angles), then the two angles are congruent. < means "Angle". Hypothesis:<1 and <2 are complementary.<2 and <3 are complementary. Conclusion: <1 equal and congruent to <3. I hope thats help.
