Angle: 2x - 12 (12 less than twice its complement)

Sum of measure of complementary angle: 90°

Equation:

x + 2x - 12 = 90

3x - 12 = 90

3x = 90 + 12

3x = 102

3x/3 = 102/3

**x = 34° the angle's complement, smaller angle**

For the angle, substitute 34 for x:

Angle = 2x - 12 (12 less than than twice the angle's complement )

= 2 (34) - 12

= 68 - 12

= 56°

**Answer: The angle is 56°.**

Check:

Angle + Angle's Complement = 90°

56° + 34° = 90°

90° = 90° √
