Two angles are complementary. One contains 30° more than the other. The measures of the angles are 30° and 60°.

30 + 60 = 90

60 - 30 = 30

30 + 60 = 90

60 - 30 = 30

An angle is 14° more than the measure of its complement.

Let x be one of the angle, its complement is 90 - x.

we were given: x = (90 - x) + 14

solve the equation we get x = 52 degrees

90 - 52 = 38 degrees

The two angles are 38 degrees and 52 degrees respectively.
