What are the measures of the three angles?Answer by Mathtut(3670)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!In Triangle abc , angle a is 5 times angle b, and angle c is 16 degrees less than angle b. What are the measures of the three angles? : a=5b........eq 1 c=b-16......eq 2 a+b+c=180...eq 3 : take values a which is 5b from eq 1 and c which is b-16 from eq 2 and plug them into eq 3 : 5b+b+b-16=180 : 7b=196 : degrees : degrees : degrees
