Let ( x ) represent the measure of the smaller angle. Since one angle is ( 9^\circ ) more than twice the other, the larger angle can be represented as ( 2x + 9^\circ ).

According to the definition of complementary angles, the sum of the measures of two complementary angles is ( 90^\circ ). Therefore, we can set up the equation:

[ x + (2x + 9) = 90 ]

Solve for ( x ):

[ 3x + 9 = 90 ] [ 3x = 81 ] [ x = 27 ]

So, the measure of the smaller angle is ( 27^\circ ).

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.
