X+2X+3X=180

6X=180

Side A (X) = 30

Side B (2X) = 60

Side C (3X) = 90

VERY GOOD!!! BUT........ not the sides remember.... the sides are unknown and can equal any rationally equivelent values.... these are the angles.

ex. angle(1) 30, side(1) 1, angle(2) 60, side(2) 2, and angle(3) 90, side(3) 3 WORKS but so does

" " side(1) 2, side(2) 4, side(3) 6 etc......

my apologies--I meant angles, not sides...I was trying to be funny with the Pythagoras reference and had a brain-fart...but those are the correct angles, which is what the question asked for
