## Text Solution

What is known?

An angle which is equal to its complement.

What is the unknown?

Find measure of the angle.

Reasoning:

Let us say given angle is $$x$$ and according to the question, its complement angle will also be equal to $$x$$. The sum of angle and its complement angle is always equal to $$90^\circ.$$

Steps:

Solve for angle which is equal to its complement.

Let the angle be $$x$$.

Therefore, complement of this angle will also be $$x$$.

We know that, the sum of measure of pair of complementary angles is $$90^\circ.$$

\begin{align} x + x &= 90^\circ\\\Rightarrow2x &=90^\circ\\ \,\Rightarrow x &=\frac{90^\circ}2\\\Rightarrow x &=45^\circ\end{align}

Thus, the angle which is equal to its complement is $$45^\circ.$$
