Angles in ratio

The size of the angles of the triangle are in ratio x: y = 7: 5 and the angle z is 42° lower than the angle y. Find size of the angles x, y, z.

Result

x =  91.412 °
y =  65.294 °
z =  23.294 °

Solution:


5x = 7y
z = y-42
x+y+z=180

5x-7y = 0
y-z = 42
x+y+z = 180

x = 155417 ≈ 91.411765
y = 111017 ≈ 65.294118
z = 39617 ≈ 23.294118
