The direct CP asymmetries of the decays B0→ K*0μ+μand B+→ K+μ+μare measured using pp collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb−1collected with the LHCb detector. The respective control modes B0→ J/ψK*0and B+→ J/ψK+are used to account for detection and production asymmetries. The measurements are made in several intervals of μ+μinvariant mass squared, with the ϕ(1020) and charmonium resonance regions excluded. Under the hypothesis of zero CP asymmetry in the control modes, the average values of the asymmetries are (Formula Presented) where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second are due to systematic effects. Both measurements are consistent with the Standard Model prediction of small CP asymmetry in these decays.
