The measure of an angle is 8 less than three times its complement. Find the measure of the angle. Complementary angles add up to 90°
x = one angle 90  x = other angle {complementary angles add up to 90} x = 3(90  x)  8 {one angle is 8 less than 3 times its complement} x = 270  3x  8 {used distributive property} x = 262  3x {combined like terms} 4x = 262 {added 3x to each side} x = 65.5 {divided each side by 4} The angle is 65.5°  Algebra House
