find the measure of each angle of an isosceles trapezoid if two of the angles has measures in the ratio of 2:3.

    the sum of the 4 angles is 360°
    But they come in equal pairs.
    let the larger be 3x and the smaller be 2x
    3x + 2x = 180
    x = 36

    so the angles are 72° and 108°

    check: 72:108 = 2:3
    72+72+108+108 = 360

    thank you reiny
