The two angles would be 55 degrees and 35, because in total they are 90 degrees.

Let the first angle be x
Angle's complement: x + 20
Sum of the measure of complementary angles = 90°

Equation:
(x) + (x+20) = 90
2x = 20 = 90
2x = 90-70
2x = 70
2x/2 = 70/2
x = 35

Substitue 35 for x:
First angle: x = 35°
Angle's complement: x + 20 = 35 + 20 = 55°

ANSWER:  The measures of the two angles are 35° and 55°.

Check:
35° + 55° = 90°
90° = 90°
