# Complementary angle of $72\displaystyle \frac{1}{2}^{\circ}$ is:

$17\displaystyle \frac{1}{2}^{\circ}$

##### SOLUTION
Given angle is $72.5^{\circ}\text{ or }\ 72\dfrac{1}{2}^{\circ}$
Let the other angle $=x$
Sum of complementary angles $= 90^{\circ}$
$\Rightarrow x+72\dfrac{1}{2}^{\circ}=90^{\circ}$
$\Rightarrow x=17\dfrac{1}{2}^{\circ}$
