Question

# In the given figure $$\triangle ABC$$ side $$AC$$ has been produced to $$D$$. $$\angle BCD = 125^o$$ and $$\angle A : \angle B = 2 : 3$$, find the measure of $$\angle A$$ and $$\angle B$$.

Solution

## Let  $$\angle A=2x$$ and $$\angle B=3x$$$$\angle BCD=\angle B+\angle A$$ (Sum of exterior angle of triangle is equal to sum of two opposite interior angles )$$2x+3x={ 125 }^{ \circ }\\ 5x={ 125 }^{ \circ }\\ x=\dfrac { { 125 }^{ \circ } }{ 5 } ={ 25 }^{ \circ }\\ \angle A=2x=2\times { 25 }^{ \circ }=50^{ \circ }\\ \angle B=3\times { 25 }^{ \circ }={ 75 }^{ \circ }$$Mathematics
