The third angle in an isosceles triangle is 56° more than twice as large as each of the two base angles. Find the measure of each angle.

  • algebra -

    Let x = each of the other two angles, then the third angle = x + 56º

    x + x + (x+56º) = 180º

    Solve for x.

  • algebra (oops) -

    In re-reading your problem, third angle = 2x + 56º.

    Sorry.
