A right triangle has exterior angles at each of its acute angles with measures in the ratio 13:14. Find the measure of the smallest interior angle of the triangle.

40 (degrees)
50 (degrees)
130 (degrees)
140 (degrees)

  1. If the interior angles are x and y,

    x+y=90
    (180-x)/(180-y) = 13/14

    Now find x and y and pick the smaller.
