# The measures of two complementary angles are in the ratio 1:5. Find the measure of each angle.

To determine

To find:

The measure of complementary angles.

Explanation

Complementary angles;

Two angles are said to be complementary angles, if their sum equals to 90Â°

Calculation:

Given ratio of complementary angles are 1:5.

Let xÂ andÂ 5x be the measure of complementary angles.

Sum of the complementary angles equals to 90Â°

x+5x=90Â°

6x=90Â°

x=90Â°
