    In a triangle, the angles are in the same order of size as the sides opposite those angles. In other words, if in a triangle you have angles of three different measures, then: 1. The smallest angle is opposite the shortest side. 2. The medium sized angle is opposite the medium sized side. 3. The largest angle is opposite the largest side.

    Figure out which side is longest, and the opposite angle to that side is the largest angle.

    In the triangle above, angle 1 is the smallest angle. That means side a, the opposite side to angle 1, is the shortest side. Angle 2 is the medium sized angle. That means side b, the opposite side to angle 2, is the medium sized side. Finally, angle 3 is the largest angle. That means side c, the opposite side to angle 3, is the longest side.

    In your problem, it is a good idea to draw the triangle.

    You are correct. Camera 3 is the answer.
