In a certain triangle the measure of one angle is triple the measure of a second angle but is 110 degrees less than the measure of the third angle. [The sum of the measures of three interior angles of a triangle is always 180 degrees.] What is the measure of each angle?

    just write it algebraically:

    b = 3a
    b = c-110
    a+b+c=180

    a + 3a + (110+3a) = 180
    7a = 70

    a=10
    b=30
    c=140
