Let the angle be 'x'
And its complement angle be 'y'
By the problem,x=2/3y
We know that the sum of complementary angles is 90°
⇒y+2/3y=90°
⇒(3y+2y)/3=90°
⇒5y=270°
⇒y=54°
And x=2/3(54°)
⇒x=36°
Therefore the angles are 54°,36°.
Thanks very very very mUCh MY friend i got the basic idea of the topic thanks

Sum of two complementary angles is 90.
let one of the angle be x.
a/q      2/3 of x +x= 90
2x/3 +x=90
(2x+3x)/3= 90
5x= 90*3
x= 270/5
∴x= 54
and 2/3 of 54= 2/3*54
= 2*18
= 36
so one angle is 36 which is two third of its complement 54.they are complementary angles.
(36+54=90°)
plzz mark as brainliest!!
