The third angle is 4 degrees less than the sum of the 2 angles. Find the measurement of the first angleAnswer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let the first abgle be x the second angle = 3x the third angle = x+3x-4 .. x+3x+x+3x-4=180 8x-4=180 8x=184 x=23 deg .. CHECK 23 + 69 + 23+69-4 =180
