Use the three steps to solve the problem. One of two complementary angles is 4 more than the other. Find the angles. (Recall that complementary angles are angles whose sum is equal to 90 .)

    complementary angles add up to 90

    so, if we let one angle =x, other angle = x+4

    wait a sec, did we get x=86 ?

    x + x + 4 = 90 2x + 4 = 90 2x = 86 x = ?

    x + x + 4 = 90 2x + 4 = 90 2x = 86 x = 86/2 = ?
