    Ok, So you know that the sum of all the angles need to be 180. Here are some facts you know about the various angles, as algebraic expressions: B=3A (equation 1) C=6A-2 (equation 2) And you know A+B+C=180 Sub in what you know about B and C into the above equation. You'll end up with 10A = 182. You can then solve for A, and use your answer for A to solve for B and C using equations 1 and 2. Let me know if this makes sense or if you need more help.

    180=x+3x+6x-2
