Let the first angle be ( x ) degrees and the second angle be ( y ) degrees.

Given that the sum of the measure of the first angle and half the second angle is 88 degrees, we have the equation: [ x + \frac{1}{2}y = 88 ]

Since the angles are complementary, we also have: [ x + y = 90 ]

Now, we can solve this system of equations to find the measures of the angles.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
