right, so this is a problem where you have three variables (the three angles), and so you'll need three equations to solve it
so let's write down three equations
1. B = 3A

2. C = 6A - 2
so there's one equation that's true for all triangles
3. A+B+C = 180 (the sum of all angles in a triangle is always 180 degrees)
now what you need to do is substitute until you get an equation with all one variable
how about let's try and get all A's
so we know B=3A, and C=6A - 2
so let's substitute both of those into the third equation - A+B+C = 180
so A + (3A) + (6A-2) = 180
10A - 2 = 180
10A = 182
A = 18.2
now that you have the value of A, you need to substitute it back into other equations to get B and C
if you do that, you'll have the answer
