# Find the sharp corners of a right triangle if one of them is 2/3 of the second.

A right-angled triangle is given, and it is also known that one of the acute angles of the triangle is 2/3 of the other.

To find the acute angles of a triangle, let us first recall the theorem on the sum of the angles of a triangle. It says that the sum of the angles of the triangle is 180 °.

Let’s designate one of the acute angles of the triangle using the variable x °, then the second can be written as 2 / 3x °.

Let’s solve a linear equation with one variable:

x + 2 / 3x + 90 = 180;

5 / 3x = 180 – 90;

5 / 3x = 90;

x = 54 °.

So, one of the acute angles is 54 °, and the second is 2/3 * 54 = 36 ° One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society.
