 Question 616871: The sum of the measures of the angles of a triangle is 180 degrees. The second angle is twice the measure of the first angle. The third angle is 3 times the measure of the second angle. Find the measures of each angle.Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi, The second angle is twice the measure of the first angle. The third angle is 3 times the measure of the second angle. Let x , 2x and 6x represent the measure of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd angle respectively Question states***sum of the measures of the angles of a triangle is 180 degrees x + 2x + 6x = 180° 9x = 180° x = 20° Measures of the angles are: 20°, 40° , 120° ```
