Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0put all in terms of X, and you know that the angles have to add to 180. So the smallest angle could be considered X, the next one can be 40+x, and the third one can be 5x. So x+40+x+5x=180 solve for X.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you'll know the smallest angle is x, add 40 to X to get the next angle, then multiply X by 5 to get the last angle.
