Find the measure of each angle in a triangle with angles: x, (x-135), and 1/10 x

we know that

x + x-135 + x/10 = 180

multiply each term by 10

10x + 10x + 1350 + x = 1800

21x = 450

x = 450/21 = 150/7

x = 150/7

x-135 = a negative ! , OOPS, something is bogus about your data, an angle inside a triangle cannot be negative.
