In a triangle, if one angle is 4 degrees more than the measure of the smallest angle, and the measure of the third angle is twice the measure of the smallest angle, what is the measure of each angle?
How do you write and solve an equation to find the measures of angles in a triangle?
If expressions for three angles in a triangle are x, x + 4, and 2x, what does x equal, and what is the measure of each angle in the triangle?
