In any triange, the sum of the measures of the angles is 180degrees. In triangle ABC, angle A is four times as large as angle B. Angle C measures 20degrees less than angle B. Find the measure of each angle.

A = 133.333333
B = 33.3333333
C = 13.3333333

WORK
A = 4B
C = B-20
A + B + C = 180

(4B) + B (B-20) = 180

6B - 20 = 180
B = 33.33333

A is 4 times that
C is 20 less than that
