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.
Great explanation. Concise and direct. Guiding but not completely solving the answer for the student. I like.
