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
can you solve that equation?
whats x ? @welshfella

solve the equation to find x:- 2x + x + 15 = 90 3x + 15 = 90 now subtract 15 to both sides and simplify
its 25. Thank you so much for the help ! @welshfella

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