| **A right angle is divided into two angles so that one of them is 5 times smaller than the other. Find the degree measure of each angle.**

Let one angle be x, then the second is 5x. You can make an equation

x + 5x = 90 °.

Here are similar

6x = 90 °;

x = 90 ° / 6.

We calculate the unknown

x = 15 ° – one angle.

15 ° * 5 = 75 ° is the second angle.

Answer: 15 °, 75 °.
