the 2 acute angles add up to 90 degrees ( as the third angle = 90 degrees) so we have 2x + x +15 = 90 solve this equation for x then you can easily see which is the larger angle

solve the equation to find x:- 2x + x + 15 = 90 3x + 15 = 90 now subtract 15 to both sides and simplify

x = 25 but the larger angle = 2*25 = 50
