put 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.
So 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.
Ahh.. Alright, that makes sense.. Thank you
