# Math Help - Finding the sides of a triangle

1. ## Finding the sides of a triangle

In triangle ABC, the angle C is six times as large as angle A. The measure of angle B is 52 degrees greater than that of angle A. Find the measure of the angles.

Thanks

2. let: angle A= x degrees

then, angle B = (x+52) degrees

and, agngle C = 6x

$A+B+C=180$

so, $x+(52+x)+6x=180$

ffinsih it..

3. All the angles add up to 180 degrees, so A+B+C=180. Figure out what B and C are relative to A, and substitute those values into the equation. You'll only end up with A's in there, and you can solve for A.
