What is the measures of the angles of a triangle that are in the extended ratio 2:2:8. What is the measure of the smallest angle?

12 parts of 180? each part is 15 degrees, the smallest angle is 30 degrees

This is the right answer, but its a bit confusing. just to specify 2+2+8=12 and 180 Divided by 12 is 14
so each 2 will be 30 and the 8 is 120. 
but 180 divided by 12 is 15.
