Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the angles are x any then we can write y = 2x  30 also as the angles rae complementary x + y = 90 you can find the angles by solving this system of equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1write the 2 equations in same form y = 2x  30 y = 90  x subtract: 0 = 3x 120 3x = 120 what is x?
