 Question 256336: The degree measures of the angles of(triangle)ABC are represented by x degrees, 2x degrees and (6x-54)degrees. Find the measure of the largest angle.Answer by unlockmath(1599)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hello, First off, we know any triangle has 180 degree for the total of the angles. Therefore, we can set up an equation like this: x+2x+(6x-54)= 180 Combine like terms to get: 9x-54=180 Add 54 to both sides will result in: 9x=234 Now divide both sides by 9 will be: x=26 Therefore the angles are: 26 degrees 52 degrees 102 degrees These should add up to 180, right? Now you know what is the biggest angle. RJ Check out a new math book at: www.math-unlock.com
