In an Isosceles triangle, one angle is 16 degrees more than twice the measure of one of the equal angles. Find the measure od eah angle.

The two equal angles would be represented by x each and then the 3rd angle would be 2x + 16 to represent the 16 more than twice.
The sum of the three angles is 180 degrees, so 1x + 1x + 2x + 16 = 180.
combine like terms (x's). Now you should have a twostep equation of which you would subtract 16 from both sides first and then divide both sides of your equation by the coefficient of x (number of x's).
