If the measures of three angles in a triangle are (2x+15)º, (10x – 20)º, and (3x + 2)º, then find the value of 15x – 3. I am getting 180. Is it right ?

    The sum of all the internal angles of a triangle = 180*

    (2x+10)+10x-20)+(3x+2)=180 15x-3=180 15x=183 x=183/15=12.2 x=12.2 (15x-3)=15(12.2)-3=180
