# Identify which of the following pairs of angles are complementary and which are supplementary

(i) 65°, 115° (ii) 63°, 27° (iii) 112°, 68°

(iv) 130°, 50° (v) 45°, 45° (vi) 80°, 10°

**Solution:**

We use the basic definition of complementary and supplementary angles to solve the questions.

We have to solve for supplementary angle or complementary angle:

(i) 65°, 115°

Sum of measure of these two angles = 65° + 115° = 180°

Therefore, these two angles are supplementary.

(ii) 63°, 27°

Sum of measure of these two angles = 63° + 27° = 90°

Therefore, these two angles are complementary.

(iii) 112°, 68°

Sum of measure of these two angles = 112° + 68° = 180°

Therefore, these two angles are supplementary.

(iv) 130°, 50°

Sum of measure of these two angles = 130° + 50° = 180°

Therefore, these two angles are supplementary.

(v) 45°, 45

Sum of measure of these two angles = 45° + 45° = 90°

Therefore, these two angles are complementary.

(vi) 80°, 10°

Sum of measure of these two angles = 80° + 10° = 90°

Therefore, these two angles are complementary.
