 Question 629442: The measures of the angles in a triangle are in the extended ratio of 2:5:8. Find the measures of the angles from the smallest to the largest and include units in your answers.Answer by dfrazzetto(277)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Sum of interior angles of a triangle always = 180 degrees add the individual ratios to get a sum composite ratio: 2+5+8 = 15 180 / 15 = 12 Multiply individual ratios: {2:5:8} * 12 = 24:60:96 Check: 24 + 60 + 96 = 180
