 Question 267644: A right triangle has one angle that measures 16 degress. What are the measures of the other two angles?Answer by Mr.Gardner(4)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Since it is a right triangle, we know that one of the angles measures 90 degrees. We also know that the interior angles of any triangle add up to 180 degrees. Therefore, since we know that one angle measures 16 degrees, we can say that 16+90+x=180, where x is our unknown angle. If we solve for x we get x=74. So our other two angles are 90 and 74 degrees. Hope this helps! Mr. Gardner
