Question

the angle of a triangle ABC are in the ratio of 8:3:4. what is the measure of the smallest angle?

2 Answer

  • The answer should be 3

  • well, triangle interior angles = 180 degrees ALWAYS

    so we need 180 to basically be in a ratio of 8:3:4

    8+3+4 = 15, so the ratio has 15 'parts'

    180 / 15 = 12

    every 'part' is equal to 12 degrees

    so 8:3:4, 3 is the smallest 'part'

    3 x 12 = 36 degrees
