#### Solution

Given:
Difference between two acute angles of a right-angled triangle = $\frac{2\pi}{5}$ rad  $\because 1 \text{ rad }= \left( \frac{180}{\pi} \right)^\circ$
$\therefore \frac{2\pi}{5} rad = \left( \frac{180}{\pi} \times \frac{2\pi}{5} \right)^\circ$
$= \left( 36 \times 2 \right)^\circ$
$= {72}^\circ$
Now, let one acute angle of the triangle be x°.
Therefore, the other acute angle will be 90° - x°.
Now,
$x^\circ - \left( 90^\circ - x^\circ \right) = 72^\circ$
$\Rightarrow x - 90 + x = 72$
$\Rightarrow 2x = 162$
$\Rightarrow x = 81$
Thus, we have: x° = 81 and,
90° - x°
= 90° - 81°
=9°
