in a scalene triangle, the measure of the largest angle is four more than two times the smallest and the other angle is two more than the smallest.
what is the measure of the largest angle ?
4x + (2)2x +2x
Am I going in the right direction with the above equation ?

  • MATH -

    180=L+S+M
    180=2S+4 +S + S+2

    check that.
