  1. let the angles be 3x, 5x, and 7x
    you know they have to add up to 180°

    Solve
    3x + 5x + 7x = 180 for x, the sub back into my definitions.

  2. Let 3x be the smallest angle; this will make other angles 5x and 7x.

    There are 180° in a triangle, so:

    3 x + 5 x + 7 x = 180 °

    15 x =180° Divide both sides by 15

    x = 180° / 15

    x = 12 °

    Angles:

    3 x = 3 * 12 = 36°

    5 x = 5 * 12 = 60°

    7 x = 7 * 12 = 84°

    Proof:

    36° / 84° = 4 * 3 * 3 / ( 4 * 3 * 7 ) = 3 / 7

    60 / 84 = 4 * 3 * 5 / ( 4 * 3 * 7 ) = 5 / 7
