### Re: Logical question s

What is the sum of the angles in a triangle on a plane?

### Re: Logical question s

270 degree because in triangle each is 90 and 3 sides so equal to 270 degree

### Re: Logical question s

In triangle abc the angle a is three times the size of that at b and half the size of the angle at c.
Clarify, is b half the size of c or a is half the size of c?? Misplaced modifiers are confusing..

### Re: Logical question s

I agree.

In triangle abc the angle a is three times the size of that at b and half the size of the angle at c. what is the angle at A???
A 30 b 36 degree c 54 deg        d 60 degree

Assuming that we are talking about a and its relationship to b and c we can form the following equations:

a + b + c = 180

a + (a/3) + 2a = 180

Can you solve for a?

### Re: Logical question s

Correct!

Ok a+b+c=108, So why you put all a

An equation like a + b + c = 180 is likely to have an infinite number of solutions.

Thuis equation has only one.

a + (a/3) + 2a = 180

Can you solve for a?

### Re: Logical question s

In triangle abc the angle a is three times the size of that at b and half the size of the angle at c. what is the angle at A???
A 30 b 36 degree c 54 deg        d 60 degree

a + b + c = 180

It says a is 3 times b so a = 3b and b = (a / 3)

a + (a/3) + c = 180

Now the question says a = (1 / 2 ) c so c = 2a

a + (a/3) + 2a = 180

Now you solve for a.

### Re: Logical question s

To check you go back to the original question:

In triangle abc the angle a is three times the size of that at b and half the size of the angle at c. what is the angle at A???
A 30 b 36 degree c 54 deg        d 60 degree

We have found that a = 54 degrees, so b is what?

### Re: Logical question s

a + b + c = 180
It says a is 3 times b so a = 3b and b = (a / 3)
