Find the measure of the vertex angle.Answer by mathitutor(25)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!let the vertex angle = x Hence the each of base angle = x - 24 Sum of all angles of a triangle = 180 => x + x - 24 + x - 24 = 180 => 3x - 48 = 180 => 3x = 180 + 48 => 3x = 228 => x = 76 degree.
