The figure is shown below.

**If two angles placed adjacent to each other form a right angle, the angles are called complementary angles and the sum of their measures is $90\xb0$****.**

Write the sum of the measures of the angles as being equal to $90\xb0$.

$\begin{array}{c}m\angle 1+28\xb0=90\xb0\\ m\angle 1=90\xb0-28\xb0\\ =62\xb0\end{array}$

The measure of the angle that forms a right angle when placed adjacent to an angle measuring $28\xb0$ is $62\xb0$.
