What are the measures of the three angles? My attempt: I tried to figure this problem out by forming an equation. I did A5=B and got B/5. I took B/5 and tried the equation C- 16 degrees= B/5. I then multiplied 5 by each variable. I got 5c-80 degrees= B. I divided 5c and b by 5 and ended up with c-80 degrees= B/5... Here i got lost.. I know that i'm doing this wrong.
