Question

# Two complementary angles are in the ratio $$7:8$$. Find the angles

Solution

## It is given that two complementary angles are in the ratio $$7:8$$.Consider $$7x$$ and $$8 x$$ as the angles.We know that, if two angles are complementary, then their sum is $$90^o$$.Then, $$7x + 8x = 90^0$$$$\implies$$ $$15x = 90^0$$$$\implies$$ $$x = \dfrac{90}{15} = 6^0$$.Here, the angles will be:$$7x=7\times 6^o=42^0$$ and $$8x= 8 \times 6 = 48^0$$.Mathematics
