Answer by stanbon(57387)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The second angle of a triangle measures 3 times the first and the third angle measures 52 degrees more than the sum of the measures of the other two.What are the angles? -------------- 1st: x 2nd: 3x 3rd: x + 3x + 52 ----------- Equation: x + 3x + x + 3x + 52 = 180 8x + 52 = 180 8x = 128 1st: x = 16 degrees 2nd: 3x = 48 degrees 3rd: 4x+52 = 116 degrees ----------------------------- Cheers, Stan H. --------
