Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, the measure of the smallest angle is 15? The website didn't state it. I don't have any answers to choose from.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay, I understand now! :) I was on the right track. 2x + 2x + 8x = 180 12x = 180 Divide both sides by 12 x = 15 Then I multiply 15 times the smallest angle (which is 2) to equal 30. I just forgot the last step. Thanks! :)
